It would be useful to be able to check the mobile version of Gmail when my internet speed gets capped. I tried switching my user agent to iPhone 3, but this didn't display properly (appeared in a tiny box). Is there another way I can do this?

Note: I am using Firefox 3.68 on Mac.

Have you tried going to http://m.gmail.com to access the mobile site directly?

This takes me straight to the Gmail mobile interface with no user agent switching required.


When signing into Gmail you can click Load basic HTML which loads an HTML version of the app, which is much smaller.


In regard to your internet speed getting capped you could also take a look at Opera for Mac OS X with Opera Turbo enabled.


Try https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/x/a (been using it for quite a long time; it's the most simple form of Gmail I have known, even better than the basic HTML view at https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/h/a)
