Are you tired of seeing those annoying advertisements and sponsored links in your Gmail account? Today, I’m sharing an easy and working method that can remove all those ads and extra links from Gmail in Firefox & Google Chrome.

To disable them, open Settings in Gmail and select the Web Clips tab. Uncheck the box saying ‘Show my web clips above the Inbox’.
No more web clips will appear now!
