Google’s New Skin

Next Story

Portfolio Monkey - The Simian Market Trend

Many of us are big Gmail fans and use it as our email service of choice. One complaint many have had, however, is that for all it’s simplicity and customization options, there has been no way to make it look better or unique to you.

Sure, there were plenty of things like plug-ins by Greasemonkey and Firefox addons, but there was only so much that could be done that way. Now Google has decided to give up the completely utilitarian attitude and give us some skin.

Gmail introduced several new themes for customizing your Gmail interface with a variety of neat options and tweaks. Some of the skins, for instance, change with the time of day or the local weather reports. While probably not all that useful, it is pretty cool. Others have modified Gmail logos, much like Google’s season-changing logo to match the holiday or upcoming events.

If you haven’t seen the new “Themes” tab on your Gmail screen, it won’t be long until you do. It’s rolled out to some of us, but in typical Google fashion, caution wins the day, so it’s being slowly introduced across the Gmail servers and accounts.

So the next time you log into Gmail, maybe you too can ogle some skin.
