I discovered that gmail is not very friendly by default. Gmail mark message as "read" only after 3 seconds, you cannot use it from keyboard and it have no preview for emails. But slow and abandoned gmail chat is turned on. Good try, gmail!
My gmail look like this and have hotkeys:
These 6 steps made you gmail a bit better:
- Disable "gmail" tabs:
- Enable keyboard shortcuts:
- Enable "Preview pane" and "undo send" labs:
- Active preview pane:
- Enable instant reading:
- Nobody use gmail chat. Disable chat:
Great, I’ve got friendly and efficient gmail in one minute.
Use hotkeys, even in gmail,
