Offline Mail no longer supported

What's changing with Gmail Offline and browser support? [via]

The new Gmail Offline capability is targeted for delivery as a Chrome browser web app this summer.

As we move the Gmail Offline capability to a Chrome web app, we will deprecate the Google Gears-based Gmail Offline. This coincides with the version 12 release of the Google Chrome browser which no longer supports Gears (Gears blogpost). As a result, Google Gears-based Gmail Offline will no longer work with the Chrome browser as of Tuesday May 24, 2011. Google Gears-based Gmail Offline will continue to work in versions of Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox versions 3.6.
