For those of you who have been trying out the many experimental features in Gmail Labs, you’ve probably activated Offline Gmail browsing before. Well, one year has already passed and it’s now time for Google to take this feature out of the Labs and release it as an official feature of Gmail.
Offline Gmail is a very useful feature especially for those who regularly experience slow Internet speed (like us here in Manila). By activating the feature, you’ll be able to use the normal Gmail interface for reading and writing email, searching and organizing even if your computer is offline. Offline Gmail also has an added feature called Flaky connection, which speeds up Gmail if your connection is slow or unreliable.
As an added feature of Offline Gmail, you can now select which messages from your Gmail Inbox that you want to be downloaded as well as send attachments even when your computer is offline.
If you’ve activated this feature before, you’re all set to use offline Gmail. But if you haven’t done so, you may tweak your Gmail settings and activate the Offline feature.
