This free Chrome extension can Simplify your Gmail

first_imgA former Gmail design lead believes his Chrome extension makes Gmail easier to use.  Chesnot/Getty Images As the old saying goes, if you want something done right, do it yourself. Michael Legget, a former design lead for Google who now works for Nori, has put that into practice when it comes to Gmail’s interface. Scrolling through his inbox was “like Lucky Charms got spewed all over the screen,” he told Fast Company in an interview published Thursday. To solve that problem, Legget created Simplify Gmail, a  free Chrome extension meant to, well, simplify Gmail. Here are a few tweaks you’ll see in Simplify:Left and right sidebars hidden behind menu buttons. A minimized search bar. Compose in the bottom right, similar to mobile interface.Calendar, Keep, Tasks condensed in the bottom right. Gmail logo in the top left gone.Google wasn’t immediately available for comment. Gmail launched in 2004, and since then has amassed more than 1.5 billion users per month. Earlier this month, Gmail became Google’s sole focus when it retired Inbox. Originally published April 26, 11:52 a.m. PT.Update, 12:12 p.m PT: Added more details.

Republican Michael Cloud Sworn In As Texas Newest US Congressman

first_img Share Abby Livingston / The Texas TribuneU.S. Rep.-elect Michael Cloud (right) participated in a mock swearing in with U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan and Cloud’s family on July 10, 2018. Moments later, Cloud was officially sworn in on the House floor.With an oath on the U.S. House floor to uphold the U.S. Constitution — and friends and family watching from above — Republican Michael Cloud officially became the newest member of Texas’ U.S. congressional delegation Tuesday evening.The swearing-in ceremony took place just before Cloud cast his first vote as the representative for Texas’ 27th congressional district, which stretches along the Gulf Coast and up toward Austin.After being introduced by U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Ennis, Cloud took to the podium with his three children to address the chamber.“I pray that we have the courage and the strength to do what’s right and to serve the people of this nation well,” he said to his new colleagues.Cloud assumed the seat after winning a special election last month to finish out the term of Republican former congressman Blake Farenthold, who resigned in April after revelations that he used $84,000 in taxpayer dollars to settle a sexual harassment claim.Cloud beat Democratic candidate Eric Holguin for the seat, 55 percent to 32 percent, surpassing the 50 percent threshold he needed to avoid a runoff. Seven other candidates also ran, though none received more than 5 percent of the vote.Cloud, who formerly chaired the Victoria County GOP, arrived in Washington on Sunday and quickly got to work assembling a staff and learning the ropes on Capitol Hill. Now that he has been sworn in, he can move into Farenthold’s former office, and he will find out his committee assignments this week. Cloud is also opening district offices in Victoria and Corpus Christi.Cloud will face another election — and Holguin, his Democratic opponent — in November, this time to determine who will win a full two-year term in Congress. Libertarian Daniel Tinus and independent James Duerr are also on the ballot.Congratulations to Michael Cloud being sworn in as a new member of Congress for the 27th District in Texas. ⁦@MichaelJCloud⁩ ⁦@TexasGOP⁩ #txlege https://t.co/G1oX2Fv1D6— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) July 9, 2018last_img read more
