I’m tickled pink. I used to use a Greasemonkey script with Gmail that added colors to labels. Later, I changed to the Better Gmail addon that simply made every label a bright red. Easy to see, served the purpose. Trouble was, that was one script that made loading Gmail take longer than it probably ought.
So, I pleasantly surprised to discover a couple of days ago that Google had added the option to color your labels. And even better they’ve provided a limited (24) but stylish set of colors that blend well, rather than clashing with everything else on the page. Suddenly my inbox is dressing a little flashier than before, and it’s become easy again to find specific emails of note.
