Access Gmail for iPad from your Google Chrome

Last weekend, Gmail gained a experimental interface, divided into two panels, allows iPad users to access Google's email service.

It didn't take long and a way to access the same interface using Google Chrome just came up.

To test the new interface, you must first create a shortcut to Gmail by clicking Control current page and then in Create app shortcuts. Leave at least the option work area checked and click OK.

Then by right clicking on the created shortcut, select the option properties. In the window that opens, with the tab Shortcut selected, add the following text at the end of the option Destiny:

–user-agent = "Mozilla / 5.0 (iPad; U; iPhone OS 3_2 CPU like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit / 531.21.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version / 4.0.4 Mobile / 7B314 Safari / 531.21 .10 "

Now close all open Chrome windows and go to the newly created shortcut. You are already making use of the iPad interface in Chrome. : D

To access from other browsers, just make them use the user-agent Mozilla / 5.0 (iPad; U; iPhone OS 3_2 CPU like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit / 531.21.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version / 4.0.4 Mobile / 7B314 Safari / 531.21.10

Just a note: In the tests I did, the interface was only loaded correctly with the Gmail language set to English.

Even if the space is not enough to add the full code, don't worry. The same thing happened here and it worked anyway. πŸ˜‰
