Gmail finally enables offline access

Gmail finally rolls out offline access as a lab feature. You need to enable Gears to access this feature. After downloading and installing Gears, go to Setting tab in the Gmail, click on labs tab and enable offline feature.


“Created in Google's Gmail Labs, offline access will enable Gmail to load in a Web browser without a Web connection. Users will be able to read, archive or write messages. Users can hit send on composed messages, which will remain in the Gmail outbox.
When the user's computer reconnects online, Gmail will push the messages from its queue toward their recipients.”Rajen Sheth, senior product manager for Google Apps, told eWEEK before the launch Jan. 27.

If Google enables offline access to it’s calendar service also, then there is no need for separate email and scheduling clients like outlook, outlook express and thunderbird. This would further strengthen Google to expand it’s user base and bulldoze it’s competitors.
