I got a GMail account about a month ago and I’ve run through alot of GMail checkers to find one that fits. I used the FireFox extension found here but then on Slashdot I saw that google have released their own version, gmail-helper.
It’s not stripping web pages so the speed is incredible and the interface is really good. It even get’s through the firewall :). So if you have GMail and run Wind0wz then go get it here.
