Gmail is one of the best web mail clients around. But as a web client, it only works online.
However, there’s a way to make Gmail accessible even offline. You need to head to the Settings page, and then hit the “offline” tab at the top of the page.
There, you’ll see an option to install Gmail offline. Click on that, and then follow the prompts to ensure you can access Gmail offline.
