Gmail has finally added support for Google Gears. This is great if you feel the urge to type an email or need to look something up while stuck in the Moot Court Room. Or if you’re annoyed by the intermittent connectivity in other areas of the school (ever click on a message and have to wait five minutes for it to load?) Gears will overcome that by caching all your email on your computer.
Enable it in Gmail Labs (Settings->Labs->Offline) and then click the new “Offline” link that appears in the upper right of Gmail.
