Use Gmail offline

Google’s Gmail is launching a new feature: ability to use the Gmail even if you are not connected to any internet connection. Hmmm... sounds great ..but can’t say anything about it...before using it . I read it on Gmail’s official blog. Google employees have been using it in their network and now they thought of launching it to the users.
This feature relies on Gears as it was mentioned on its official blog. It doesn’t matter whether you are working on any operating system like
microsoft windows xp, windows vista or linux.
Here is what they have said about it and how to use it:
“Once you turn on this feature, Gmail uses Gears to download a local cache of your mail. As long as you're connected to the network, that cache is synchronized with Gmail's servers. When you lose your connection, Gmail automatically switches to offline mode, and uses the data stored on your computer's hard drive instead of the information sent across the network. You can read messages, star and label them, and do all of the things you're used to doing while reading your webmail online. Any messages you send while offline will be placed in your outbox and automatically sent the next time Gmail detects a connection. And if you're on an unreliable or slow connection (like when you're "borrowing" your neighbor's wireless), you can choose to use "flaky connection mode," which is somewhere in between: it uses the local cache as if you were disconnected, but still synchronizes your mail with the server in the background. Our goal is to provide nearly the same browser-based Gmail experience whether you're using the data cached on your computer or talking directly to the server.”
Seems interesting and they will be launching it soon...may be in a couple of days. Soon I will get back to you with my experience of using Gmail offline on my newly installed
windows 7 which is on trial basis.
It's quite simple to make it work, just follow these simple steps, 
  1. Click Settings and click the Labs tab.
  2. Select Enable next to Offline Gmail.
  3. Click Save Changes.
  4. After your browser reloads, you'll see a new "Offline0.1" link in the upper righthand corner of your account, next to your username. Click this link to start the offline set up process and download Gears if you don't already have it.

Finally, Google has decided to launch Mac version of Google chrome this summer. It seems Google is going fast on tracks of success. It launched Google chrome on 2 September for Windows, and released it from the beta tag in early December.
Brain Rakowski , Chrome product manager recently commented on browsers progress. He said,” he is hopeful that the Mac (and Linux) version will be ready in the first half of 2009 and is able to render most web pages pretty well.” He also mentioned that, they have not spend time on building features, they are still trying working on making it stable and getting the architecture right.

Browser Security Handbook Made Public

Google has released its own take on the nature of browser security -- and the ways in which browsers lack it.
The Browser Security Handbook -- which apparently began life as a wiki -- begins with a historical look at what browsers do and how they do it, and builds from that foundation to a detailed and fairly technical look at security concerns, and an examination of the lack of consistency among browsers that, on the surface, appear to be doing the same things.
The text takes
Microsoft's Internet Explorer (6and 7), Mozilla's Firefox (2 and 3), Safari, Opera, as well as Google's own Chrome and its mobile browser, Android, and rates them against various tests and security concerns ranging from navigation to same-origin policies (rules regarding content loaded into the browser from sites other than the one currently being viewed) and plenty of in-between. Whether it’s a browser security issue or a computer security issue, contact us at 1 800 602 586, we will help you solve your problem online or by taking the remote of your computer.
As noted in a Google blog last month, the company's rationale for making the material public -- the implication is that some or even much of this was generated for internal use, although that's not completely clear from the brief introduction -- is to "capture the risks and security considerations present for general populace of users accessing the web with default browser settings in place."
As a baseline, this is a good thing, but as the Handbook's author, Michal Zalweski notes, browsers, and particular their plug-ins and enhancements, are remarkably malleable, with many of user-added bells and whistles setting the stage for setting off (or failing to) alarm bells and whistles when they "interfere with existing features in non-obvious ways."
