Script Summary: UI tweaks to Gmail's new "Preview" theme

Version: 2011.10.27.001

Script homepage

Gmail's new "Preview" theme with tighter margins/padding/line-height, larger next/prev buttons, misc. other pixel shifting. Tested to work in Chrome, Safari with GreaseKit, Mailplane, and Firefox.


I'm at the mercy of Google's cryptic, compiled HTML & CSS structure which means this could break at any moment. That said, I don't intend on going back to the stock Gmail UI, so I will probably be maintaining this for a bit.
