Is your internet connection slow to load Gmail faster? Are you using Standard Gmail layout which requires fast internet connection? Then you should try switching to HTML Basic view for fast loading of Gmail inbox.
Gmail comes with two web layouts, one Standard web layout for better mailing performance and good look and other Basic HTML layout which will be fast enough to load even in slow internet connection. If you have strong connection and good internet speed, then I would suggest to continue using Standard version. For slow ISP connection, you may switch to HTML basic.
How to switch to Basic HTML in Gmail?
For loading Gmail faster in slow ISP, you have to start loading your Gmail web in Basic HTML by clicking on the link available at bottom right corner of the screen.
On-click, your standard view of Gmail will be changed to Basic HTML view which would be faster than standard view.
You will be also having a option at the top of Gmail to set Basic HTML mode as default view for future logins. (screenshot below)
How to switch back to Standard view Gmail?
In-case, you wanted to switch back to standard view in future, then you can simply click on link which says “Switch to standard view” on top of the screen. (above screenshot)
And if you have set basic HTML as default view, then you will find a link as Standard View in right top to switch back. (screenshot below).
Note and Conclusion:
You may load Gmail faster in basic HTML view but most of rich features of Gmail are only available in standard view.
