Google email has a huge number of functions and is perfectly integrated with the services of the internet giant. However, for some devices it may be too “heavy”. In these cases we recommend use Gmail in basic htmla little further down we will explain how and why We should do it.
Why use the basic HTML version of Gmail
For those with a very slow internet connection, the basic HTML version of Gmail will load and run much faster than the standard version. Even with the basic version, we will be able to check our emails normally.
We will also want to use this version when we have a limited data plan, here every MB counts; We even recommend preventing Android apps from using data in the background, to try to save as much as possible.
Compared to the standard version of Gmail, the basic version loads fewer items and uses fewer resources; so we will end up consuming less data.
Additionally, if we are not interested in functions such as tasks or calendars, we will not lose much with the most “Lite” version of Google’s mail service. However, be aware that if you overuse Gmail’s spell checker, keyboard shortcuts, and rich formatting, they won’t work with this version.
How to use the basic version of HTML
To be able to use the basic version of Gmail, it is not necessary to make changes in the configuration, we can switch between the standard and basic view as many times as we want. For this we are going to enter Gmail from the web browser and launch the site in basic HTML directly.
After accessing this link, Gmail will ask us if we want to enter the basic version or use the modern one. Obviously, we are going to choose the basic one. We can find, read and write new emails, even perform other tasks as usual.
How can we access quickly? All we would have to do is bookmark that URL address in our browser. When we want to enter the basic version, we use the bookmark. Instead, if we want to use the modern version, we simply log into Gmail as we normally would.
