A Chrome extension to focus on your email

It all started with a tweet by Christian Genco, which Justin shared on the MegaMaker #general channel.

I've always had a hard time focusing on my current task when I'm out of the zone, and when I saw this I instantly knew this could help with my problem if applied to other sites. When Christian shared a mockup of how the same code looked on Gmail, I knew I had to get this working somehow.

"As requested, it's even better for Gmail" - @cgenco on Twitter

I asked Christian if he was planning to make a Chrome extension for this, and he told me I was free to build it myself, so I started to work with the CSS code he gave me and had a working extension in around 30 minutes āš”

Today the extension was finally approved, which means you can improve your email focus today in just one click. The extension is also open-source, so you can check out the code and collaborate on GitHub.
