What is the appeal of this? Is it less memory intensive than having a Google Chrome tab open?

@pfilias I'd be curious about this as well. If it's not, then I don't see the benefit of having a dedicated app.

@pfilias for me, I’ve been having issues with too many tabs open in Chrome - and killing my Ram, so I’m hoping this will allow me to offload a couple tabs.

@pfilias actually, there's kind of people that like to have a standalone application instead of pinned tabs in a browser. I'm one of them, so I've built it for myself. By the way, some of the additional features are planned in future (compact & dark modes). The best part of it is that application is open sourced and that means everyone can propose or implement the feature they like to have.

@pfilias After google kills its Inbox, this looks like only replacement for me.

It needs more plugins and extra features besides those that are provided on the web client.

Pros:

None

Cons:

- Same as the web client

- Continuous notifications for unopened emails which is hampering my concentration and productivity

Exactly! You use Mac, just wrap it up with Fluid or something

An issue with continuous notifications are known and going to be resolved soon. About extra features: at least two of them are going to be implemented in nearest future (compact mode & dark theme). Thanks for your feedback anyway!

This looks great! I’ve been looking for another option since Boxy became so flaky.
