Gmail turned online email on its ear when it popped up a few years back. Naturally, there are more than just a few Gmail extensions for Firefox for an improved user experience. Want a more dynamic signature? How about the ability to open multiple Gmail accounts at once in the same browser? What about the chance to write your emails from right to left? All of these and more are available via these 13 Gmail extensions.
As with any list of Firefox tools, please do not install all of these at once unless you’d like to slow down your browser.
Better Gmail 2 – A Firefox extension that combines some of the most popular Greasmonkey scripts for Gmail into an easy to install extension. You can control which ones are operating by use of a simple checkbox interface.
Blank Canvas – Lets you create multiple HTML signatures that are inserted where you choose in your emails.
Email This! Bookmarklet Extension – Will send your chosen recipient the link, title, & highlighted text of the page you are currently viewing. Will work with multiple emails such as Yahoo and stand-alone clients, but is focused on Gmail (as if you couldn’t tell from their logo).
Gmail Checker – Will allow you to check for new emails on traditional Gmail accounts and Google Apps accounts.
