Google’s Gmail Finally Gets Offline Capabilities
It’s time to mark an item off my Google wishlist! The Gmail team has announced that, starting this week, users will be able to use a Gmail Labs feature that allows for the email service to be used when offline.
It’s something that I–and many others–have longed for. OK, maybe it wasn’t so much of a deep yearning, more of a "sure would be nice to have" feeling. Anyway, the video below explains how Gmail will use the Google’s Gears tool to provide offline email use.
So, how do you think Microsoft is reacting to this news? Is an offline Gmail more of a threat to Outlook? Have you been waiting to make the switch?
