The launch of Google Desktop for Mac reminds me to begin an experiment I’ve been wanting to run for a while now. As much as people applaud Mail.app, I’ve never liked it. I’m a recent switcher and I’m forced to use Outlook 2003 at work, so that might contribute, but I just don’t think I will get used to Mail.app.
So, for the next month I’m switching solely to Gmail, using Google Desktop and Notifier to keep me connected via my Macbook. I think it will actually be a big usability improvement for me as I’ll have a single integrated view of my e-mail whether at home, on my Blackberry, or on my work PC.
