Gmail without doubt was responsible for pulling lots of users back to the cloud. The nearly ‘unlimited’ storage comes with a powerful set of features that makes email management a breeze. But it still had an Achilles Heel. Gmail needs the umbilical cord of an internet connection to work. There was of course Google Gears that made it possible but it was discontinued as Google shifted its focus to developing tools for HTML5 and Gears wasn’t built to work with this new browser standard.
Let’s shift that to the past tense now, because thanks to the new official Google Chrome extension – Offline Google Mail, you can now read, respond to, search and archive your emails without being connected to the internet. So those among you who grieved at the death of Google Gears primarily due to the loss in ability to use Gmail offline can now rejoice!
