A while back, I blogged about switching from a desktop email client to the Web version of GMail, or in my case, Google Apps. And after trying it, I could seriously never go back to a desktop client application.
Emails are at the very root of my professional life. It needs to be « in the cloud » and accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world.
I don’t want to download them locally, update or troubleshoot a local application, and I don’t want a large overhead. And let’s face it; none of the email clients currently on the market can even remotely compete with GMail’s outstanding features like threaded emails, filters, labels and all those cools Labs features.
Unfortunately, this has also created a serious problem.
