While there are a lot of people out there that who are scared at the thought that Google is the new Microsoft of the late 1990s and early 2000s, you have to admit they do a great job at making things easier. Google is now giving gmail users the ability to access email without an internet access. While this is basically a Microsoft outlook steal, it does make it easier for folks like me that are tied to gmail. In recent years, there has been a big push from Google to be the email provider of many businesses and schools.
Now you can download a chrome add-on and you can search and review email even without an internet connection. Great stuff Google. Check out the add-on here.
