small google hack I created

Hi all.

Time to have some good hacking or tweaking.

For ages edge and me have had a love hate relationship.

Waterfox will not allow me to see basic html in gmail and future
waterfox over a certain version 20.08 just don’t play nice with my system.

Edge does work but on my amd system doesn’t like nvda untill I restart
that on gmail addresses.

So, I created this simple hack.

I found the links which you can do on google for basic and standard
views, then linked them on a domain shortener.

The source for the code is here.

https://support.google.com/mail/answer/15049?hl=en

Copy the links from here then make a shortener service like bitly, or
cutt.us and put any keyword in you want, remembering that this will be
public net access.

for me www.cutt.us/gmaildefault for standard

www.cutt.us/gmailweb for basic.

This isn’t really  much of a hack and I should have done this ages ago
but I decided I couldn’t be bothered horsing around.

From yesterday even with weather internet explorer has become totally
useless, not even microsoft uses it.

The only thing to do is use edge and while that will work with weather
and its ok, I don’t care for edge not even chromium.

If standard edge had a menu I’d go back to legacy but thats not an
option as winaero says its going to be got rid of soon.

This hack is usefull if you need to admin someone’s account in standard
view and want to use the more accessible and easier to use basic.

Yes standard view is supposed to be accessible but I have never bothered
when basic is a lot easier to use.

Of course it goes without saying that I use basic perminantly on my gmail.

Anyway, this is a small banged together fix anyone can do that I put
together in like 5 minutes.

Later all.
