Read your GMail while offline

This article was been published more than a year ago. The information may be outdated.

In a previous post, I talked about Google Gears. Now, let’s take a look at a practical application. First, the developers at Google brought us the next big thing in web-based email. Now, they are bringing a way to take it offline.
 
Bear in mind, Offline is a GMail Labs feature, so it is wont to be a bit unstable for now. That being said, here’s how to enable the feature:
 

  1. Sign in to Gmail and click ‘Settings’.
  2. Click the ‘Labs’ tab and select ‘Enable’ next to ‘Offline Gmail’.
  3. Click ‘Save Changes.’
  4. In the upper righthand corner of your account, next to your username, there will be a new ‘Offline’ link.
  5. Click this link to start the offline synchronization process.
