Opening Gmail in basic HTML view

How many of you have been stuck on a low bandwidth internet connection and your Gmail won't just open. It just loads and shows you a blank page. This happens when you are accessing gmail from a low bandwidth connection and/or a crappy PC. Gmail just shows loading for second time and man it is stuck. The remedy at that moment is to switch to the basic HTML view and check your mail. But what if it doesn't show you "Switch to basic HTML view" option after loading!!!

So here's the remedy. Sign into gmail and let it load. If it fully loads well and good but if it takes time or gets stuck just paste the following code into the address bar

and Voila the Gmail opens in basic html view. Some features like chat may be disabled but You'll have to suffice with that.
