I'm not sure I got this right, but IMO a mail client is worth having.
Even if you *really* need a web app, you can go for roundcube or
squirrel mail and teach them to read your mail from Google's IMAP/POP.
Why bother accepting a default UI when you can easily go and choose one?
Let me put it this way: it's not a free and transparent service (and you
all knew that in the first place), and by using it you explicitly
agree(d) to get what they give and only that. If you agreed to that,
then why all this noise?
