  • (2019-08-31) Shane Lear: I love this extension. It adds just the right amount of color and is much better than the original. Kudos!
  • (2018-10-04) Anna Lippert: I have had this nice extension installed for years, but it has stopped working since the last Gmail upgrade. Could it be updated? Thanks.
  • (2018-09-27) I have always loved this extension until they changed to the new gmail. I hate the new gmail. You can no longer see the icons from this extension. You have to look hard for the delete button or any other button for that matter.Could you please update the color of these icons to make them easier to see? Maybe make them brighter? I really don't need more eye strain to read the computer. Thank you so much.

  • (2012-10-16) Kieran: Good extension - I like it - would like some customisation though... Options page is just plain grey.
  • (2012-04-25) Jonathan Fretin: Nice colors.
  • (2012-03-19) Cory Roberts: Perfect, if only Google would take the hint. People associate things with colors.
  • (2012-03-06) Robby King: An excellent yet subtle addition to the Gmail UI.
  • (2012-02-27) Hugo Rossi: Great idea, but unfortunately it does not work for me... don't know why.
  • (2012-02-06) Pedro Sánchez: Great extension that does what it says it does. Only thing I'd add to it is to also color the "Refresh Inbox" button.
  • (2012-01-14) Jannulik U: Great! Thank you for good idea :))

  • (2011-12-28) Mari Marimar: __________________________ Thank you, I strongly hope to keep the old look of Gmail. But if Google imposed against the will of the user and required a new kind, I will use your extension - because, Black icons ugly and I hate them. : D Please Make extension, I can to keep my old Gmail:)))
  • (2011-12-22) Kövesdi András: Elsőre tetszik, bár pár ikon még kimaradt. Telepítve marad :D
  • (2011-11-22) Fabien Lasserre: Non-intrusive, adds just a bit of color, and basically gets the work done. I like small ideas like this one :)

  • (2013-01-26, v:0.8.9) Matt Wyckoff: Color icons?
    I've used Color Icons for Gmail for some time, recently my system crashed and I re-installed Windows 7, 32 bit Ultimate. I then re-installed Chrome, but now when I install the Color Icons for Gmail extension, I do not get color icons and the delete button now has a paperclip on it. The buttons to the left of the delete button are grey, with no icons on them at all. I've uninstalled the extension and re-installed it with the same result?
