- Gmail messages, rounded and compressed

The new Gmail style has lots of whitespace, and messages in the conversation view are less distinct. This style makes several changes:
  • Round corner boxes around messages, like the old style.
  • Gradient message header.
  • More compressed throughout, both in expanded messages, closed, and elided messages.

To use this style, install Firefox and Stylish. If you already have Stylish, make sure this site is allowed to run JavaScript.

(Though installing Stylish is recommended, if your browser supports user scripts, you can also install this style as a user script.)
