Still awaiting my email w/ beta link :/

I personally like the ability to switch users fast. Great for multiple gmail users in one-household, or somebody with more than one gmail account. Otherwise it's a hassle to login/logout each time you want to check a different account.

If your one big problem is the mailto links, then Gmail Notifier sorts that out by openning it with your browser. I don't understand the desire to have an extra application open.

Best. Application. EVAR.

No really, this program is a game-changer. It make GMail as easy to use as Mail. My one big frustration with GMail was using mail-to links, which would open Mail and then I'd have to cut-n-paste the address and subject. No longer. And the new features like built-in screen snap is just gravy.

Fantastic app, get it now!

Nice application. Still in private beta but getting better all the time.

The main reason I use this over Mail.app is the conversations in Gmail, nothing like that in Mail.

This app looks good for now, but once firefox 3.0 hits the stage and let's you use web apps offline, there'll be no need to pay for this stuff :-)

I don't mean to be a pessimist, but I'm trying to understand the purpose to of this app when I can just open up a web browser which I usually have open anyway and go directly to gmail which is right in my bookmarks bar, rather than having to open up this app. I also realize that there are some pretty neat features to this app such as drag and drop attachments, growl notifications, and optimized photos, but they are not that big of features when you think about it maybe other than optimized photos. Attatching a document in gmail is easy, growl notifications aren't really necessary for web app although it is cool to see this. The other problem is that this app is, it's shareware for service which is free. This new sort of trend of making profitable apps off free web services is really not good. It seems wrong, and I'm sure goes against some sort of policy.

It's interesting to see the evolution of this kind of app... it started with WebMail, then Gmail Browser, now this... this is the future after all -- as long as they get offline support right. ;)

It's because Gmail is far and away the best way to do mail and adding desktop only features too it makes it way better than any other option.

Seems nice, but why would I use this over Mail.app?
