Simplify Gmail may just save Gmail for me. From the co-creator of Google Inbox, Michael Leggett, Simplify Gmail brings the beauty of Inbox to Gmail. Google has already introduced some of the tools and tricks of Inbox to Gmail, but it kept the goddamn awful looks of the original site. Also, the adverts.
My friends and family + my professional contacts already know to contact me via Protonmail. But as a Chromie, I need my Google account to access my Chromebook. It is also the account I use for mailing lists, social media, forums and other similar types of email.
