Hmm. I have read this several times and it still doesn’t make sense to me. 🙂 How is it possible for Chrome to delete data from other apps??? Isn’t Chrome just another app, or have I missed something and Chrome is now part of the OS, a’la Internet Explorer in the Microsoft Windows 3.1 days (or whatever)?

Well, I guess this makes sense. Recently I did find myself using both Inbox and Gmail for different purposes; I used Inbox for a quick triage of stuff and then use Gmail for composition and search functionality.

However for simplicity’s sake it seems like just using a single Google e-mail app make sense.

I’m still holding out for the next incarnation of Google Wave!!! 🤞🍀🦄
