It still bugs me as to why people with gmail accounts use a 'native
application client'. It's not my intention to start a flame war or A
vs B discussion.

I honestly just want to know what the benefits of such a client is
over using G/mail/drive/calendar/contacts in a browser.

Maybe there should be a new thread for this :P
