The new Gmail Desktop Gadget from Google brings your Gmail inbox straight to your desktop.
The new gadget, currently only available on Windows runs with Google Desktop. With it you can read your mail, star it, reply to it, send, search and more.
The… Window (is it a Window?) updates every so often too to show your new mail.
If you use Gmail, downloading the Google Desktop and using this gadget is well worth your time.
