  1. So, um… what’s the advantage over using a browser window? I have set Gmail as a Chrome app and I get all the frills of Gmail in a desktot-app-alike. Plus, that huge white area at the top is a deal breaker – and stupid, to boot.

  2. So, I visited their website to find more. What they tout:

    -No config needed; Gmail doesn’t need any either
    -Gmail user interface. Duh. Worse, too. Not skinnable either.
    -Offline support; Gmail does that.
    -Cross platform; like any web site :D

    Am I missing something here?

    • Yes, you are missing the fact the GeeMail runs offline. The Chrome app does not. Gmail was available offline through Gears and still is on some browsers (IE and Firefox), but not Chrome. So if you are offline you can’t access your gmail. Geemail makes it so you can.
