Joel on Software thinks Google is making a browser

Of course Google is claiming the contrary, but is a Google browser really in the works? A Q&A With Joel on (Microsoft) Software: "In my ('How Microsoft Lost the API War') essay, I quoted a Microsoft guy (and Longhorn Avalon team member) named Joe Beda. I quoted him saying 'Microsoft is making a big bet on the rich client.' And now he works at Google with Adam Bosworth. I'm sure what they're doing is a new browser. It's the IE (Internet Explorer) team reconstructed inside Google."

Check Gmail messages without opening your browser

Gmail Notifier:
The Gmail Notifier is a downloadable Windows application that alerts you when you have new Gmail messages. It displays an icon in your system tray to let you know if you have unread Gmail messages, and shows you their subjects, senders and snippets, all without your having to open a web browser.

Gmail adds new goodies: contacts, forwarding and Atom feeds for inbox

While I'm not able to locate the Atom web feeds yet, Micro Persuasion is showing off some screenshots of this new functionality:
Micro Persuasion: Gmail Adds Atom Feeds: "Gmail has added Atom web feeds, a format that's akin to RSS. The feeds include a summary of each new message in your Google email. See screen grabs. "

One thing really cool about Google is they are always adding new goodies and this makes their products stay lively.
