Google Improves Offline Sync For Chrome Users

After killing Gears, Google reintroduced offline support last September with a Chrome extension, but that wasn’t particularly well received either. Will the latest update finally make offline Gmail a realistic prospect?

Changes in the new version include the ability to customise the number of days you sync (7, 14 or 31); downloading attachments so you can access them offline; and proper support for Google’s keyboard shortcuts. It’s definitely an improvement, but still doesn’t match what used to be possible with Gears. If you give it a try, tell us your impressions in the comments.
