See for more information (in French).

This extension allows you to:
- Hide Gmail ads on the right, so that the message takes up the entire width of the screen (even in a new window).
- Hide the ads that appear below the message.
- Hide the useless links that appear at the bottom of the page, and only show the useful ones.
- Hide the "Invite a friend" box on the left.
- Decrease the width of the "Compose mail" textarea (plain text only) to behave like it used to in older versions of Gmail (plain text textarea used to be the same width as the fake textarea displayed at the bottom of an email before you click on it to reply).

All this is done without any Javascript, just an embedded CSS stylesheet. That's why you will be prompted to allow this extension to access your data on Chrome needs that to be able to embed the stylesheet.
