Do you remember a world without email? We don’t either! Full inboxes are now a part of our daily lives, no matter what email service you prefer. However, there are a lot of Firefox users whose email of choice is Gmail – so we’ve compiled this list of handy Add-ons to help you manage your experience – plus one that supports several other email providers.
Integrated Gmail is a Firefox Add-on that allows you to make the inbox collapsible. It also lets you access other Google services of your choice of ( Google Calendar, Reader, etc.) seamlessly into the Gmail interface below the inbox (rather than the sidebar) using a collapsible box. If your are inbox minimalist, enable minimalist mode to clean up the inbox even more.
Google Shortcuts is another Firefox Add-on that puts all the Google services at your fingertips in one convenient location. Display all Google services as buttons or as a space-saving drop-down menu next to your address bar. Reach services like Gmail, Google Reader, Google Maps, Google Calendar, and many more in a single click from your browser.
WebMail Notifier works with Gmail – but also many other email services as well. It checks your webmail accounts and notifies you of the number of unread emails. Firefox user Marcelo A. raves about this Add-on, saying “The first addon that I install after Firefox. Ever. Reduces my work radically, makes sure that I don’t miss anything at my faster routine and verifies almost any email provider. Reinforces the idea that Firefox is not only a browser, but a tool to work and study.”
