You're just minding your own business, just merrily bopping along with your Gmail and cool customization of Gmail. Then one day you login, and Gmail is FUCKED! This crappy new look that you can't do anything with, AAAAAAAUGH!!! Then comes the realization that Gmail Skins will NOT be updated with NO NOTICE FROM ANYONE!! And you can't even choose the better Older version as a default! Half-assed from all points! What about my nice look? What about the ease of use? What about Scarecrow's brain?! What to do, what to do??
You do the following:
1. Get Firefox, natch.
2. Get Greasemonkey extension.
3. Install this script.
Viola! Not only will Gmail Skins work, you'll also be able to use all the other extensions, scripts and styles for Gmail from Firefox! Oh happy day!!!
