ail, tasks and the integrated suite. How will you manage your personal information in 2008?
With Gmail and IMAP, you can now manage your mail in the browser and offline. Mail.app isn’t a bad place to start. Thunderbird is out there if you’re looking for more features. But, if you’re looking for speed with just the right amount of features – GNUMail is for you.
GNUMail supports POP and IMAP as well as rules and off-line mail management. Did I mention its fast? You’ll have your inbox downloaded while Firefox is still bouncing in the dock.
For Leopard users, there’s a great new interface for managing tasks. Anxiety generates its namesake emotion by making your iCal and Mail tasks visible on the desktop in a smooth black interface. It’s as good looking as it is useful.
Until now, most personal information managers have segregated mail, events and tasks into separate silos. Chandler breaks that model with a GTD friendly application that makes turning a message into an event with a check of a box.
In addition to a brilliant interface to your data, Chandler also offers powerful sync capability – integrating iCal calendars and IMAP folders into its one-stop-shop solution. Its new, and it is a little slow, but it has a lot of promise.
