How To: Load Gmail Faster

26Apr08

Hi guys, of late, gmail has been loading very slowly for me. This means that, when ever I give my username and password at the login screen, after successful login, the screenshot shown below displays.

Gmail Loads Slowly

When that happens we hate to wait for infinitely long times. So, I discovered a simple hack through which you can eliminate that screen.

Notice that the address bar contains the URL of the format http://mail.google.com/mail?auth=DQAA etc.

Now, all you have to do is, change the “http://” in your browser’s address bar to “https://”, which means the URL will now look like https://mail.google.com/mail?auth=DQAA etc. Press Enter. Gmail loads faster.

  1. To be honest, I wasn’t sure GMail was loading slowly anyway, although I thought I’d give your hack a try. Didn’t seem to make a lot of difference, sorry.

    I can’t even get gmail to load on Windows Vista or rather I can get it loaded but I can’t retrieve my mail. I have tried all different settings but but nothing works on Vista. I have a comcast account and have no problems with it.

  29. 30 YOU ARE ALL DUMB

    YOU ALL ARE IDIOTS.

    THE NEW VERSION OF GMAIL IS TOO DAMN SLOW. THE NEW GMAIL IS NOW PRELOADING THE EMAIL. THAT IS TAKING GMAIL TOO LONG TO LOAD. IT’S STUPID. GMAIL HAS BECOME TOO DAMN F*CKING SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW.

    GO BACK TO THE OLD GMAIL: https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=1

    When I add the ‘s’ to the http address as suggested, it sure works for me. However, when I enter that site first of all a pop-up appears warning me of a safety certificate not being in place. I ignored that warning and continue and accessed gmail faster than ever.

    However, I’ continued wondering about the safety certificate. Could I assume that I can safely ignore that warning?

    I’ve now found the solution to bypass the safety certificate warning by accessing Gmail as follows:

    https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox

    It works like a dream!
