Removing Gmail's new touch style buttons/padding

Is there any way to remove 2018 new Gmail's bubbly touch/click areas? Clearly the padded space to activate checkboxes and buttons is intended for touch devices, but it is just obnoxious for me on desktop, especially if using a more compact style where the paddings overlap.

Thanks in advance for your help and time.


  • Do you dislike the animations or just the weird padding/circles? I've had good luck getting ALL gmail's animations gone by using

    *, *:before, *:after {
    /*CSS transitions*/
    transition-property: none !important;
    /*CSS transforms*/
    transform: none !important;
    /*CSS animations*/
    animation: none !important;
  • The animation has definitely been obnoxious, but I'm hoping there's a way to deal with the padding too. Thank you very much for the animation removal.
