Google After about 8 months of work, Google has "released Chrome 2" to the general public. Technically, this just means they moved the version of Chrome in the beta channel up to the stable channel. "We're referring to this as Chrome 2, but that's mainly a metric to help us keep track of changes internally. We don't give too much weight to version numbers and will continue to roll out useful updates as often as possible." There's lots of decent goodies in Chrome 2.

Nah, I much prefer local apps for e-mail, using IMAP to keep the messages on the server. Until webmail gains full keyboard support with user-assignable shortcuts, it won't replace local e-mail apps. Zimbra's web UI comes close with a lot of keyboard shortcuts, but they aren't user-customisable. Same with GMail.

Using the mouse is just too slow.

GMail supports keyboard shortcuts (press shift + ? for help). A labs feature, which has to be enabled separately, allows to customize the shortcuts.
