Want to see GMail subjects instead of tons of labels? Hide 'em in labs
Don't need the multitude of multicoloralism cluttering your inbox? Head over to the labs page and turn on remove labels from subjects.
If you work on a cramped screen at all (hello, netbook users!) you'll likely welcome the change. Instead of subjects getting shoved rudely aside by multiple labels, you'll actually be able to glimpse what new messages are about before opening them.
Labels are great for sorting things, but I'm glad I can now enable a more minimal look for my inbox.
