Does what it says, simply and efficiently. Thanks :)

I'm using a nested system of labels, so shortening the label names saves a lot of space in the folder view. I wonder how the other 8B users of Gmail can live without this.

I really need this to work... ..and it's only meh. Dang it. I have a deep label structure that's very frustrating to work with, as many as 4 or 5 layers. In some places this extension will perfectly pluck the correct text - the last bit after the final "/" and display that. In some cases it brings along the preceding "xxxx/" with it. In nearly all cases the label/folder above the final one is unaffected, and displays the entire string. Nearly. But not all. Inconsistent. More like 2-1/2 stars... Show more

I've used this extension for years with absolutely no problem, and I love it! Turns those hideously long labels into short, concise things! However, as of today, 8/4/2021, suddenly there is an issue. Most of the labels are still loading correctly, but on some of them, it has: 72.png loading="lazy"> before what would normally be the shortened-version of the label name. It just happened sort of suddenly and out of nowhere, and it's only a few of the labels it's displaying wrong, but I'm un... Show more
