I would like someone to spread some light on bradbeattie's question down earlier. I wonder the same.

At first I didn't "get" the point of this app...until I got a beta invite and started to use it. It's incredibly fast, much faster than either Mail.app or Gmail in a browser - for me, the killer feature has to be double-clicking to switch between accounts; fast, and seamless. If you're a heavy-duty Gmail user, this is the app for you; if you don't use it for much beyond sending/recieving mail, I recommend Gmail Browser: http://willmore.eu/gmailbrowser/

I absolutely love this app.

I love this app. It's super fast.
The only problem is that the full version won't be free...

cbserra: You can simply turn off WebClips in the Settings. And concerning the Ads - Camino/Firefox does also block them.

It is nice to have the unread count in the icon and to be able to switch accounts so fast - but for me, that was it already. Since it uses WebKit, there is no chat and no quick contacts. Limits me too much, I still prefer keeping Gmail open in a tab in Camino. More features, the single loss is the ability to drop pictures. Nevertheless, I like the idea, keep it going!

I really enjoy the custom CSS feature. Allowed me to hide the "WebClips" at the top, as well as the "Sponsored Ads" on the right side of emails. Also, I used the CSS from a Greasemonkey script that alters the theme for a cleaner looking Gmail.

I find this app excellent for switching between my Gmail accounts.
It also means that i dont have to tie-up a Safari window/tab to have access to Gmail.
I will buy it if its really cheap.

Maybe I'm missing the point here, but why not just use Mail.app with GMail through POP3?

Not as powerful as Gmail on Firefox with Better Gmail, but a useful add-on to have on your Mac if you need to draft email offline.

Doesn't add anything to solve the mailto link issue, that can easily be solved in several other ways.

Smooth..like...butter!

I've never experienced Gmail so fast before.

Especially when using the WebKit application
