It was okey but now not responding anymore...
Amazing extension and exactly what I wanted for such a long time! One thing I would not have imagine is that the rendered inline TeX equations are horizontally ALIGNED with the rest of the text, which is a MAGIC solution to writing TeX commands in any mails. One suggestion to improve this TeX4Gmail solution for high-dpi (which is a wide-spreading trend, 2K on mobiles/PCs and 4K on desktops) is fetching images of 600% scale factor (from CodeCogs or WordExpress) and downscaling it correspondingly. I did it by customizing the downloaded extension and adding an additional option of "upscaling 600% and downsizing to fit the text". It's a pity that Gmail has not support SVG even in 2022, where almost all other browsers (web and clients) have supported as shown here https://www.caniemail.com/features/image-svg/. Otherwise, this extension could be easily adapted to support rendering SVG format of TeX for Gmail, which is the ultimate solution I am looking forward to.
