Google's HTML5 plans for Gmail include 1 second-to-Inbox startup

Google wants to deliver a more desktop-like user experience in Gmail, and they're planning to lean on HTML5 to do it. Recently Google added drag-and-drop support. Google is now working on reversing the process -- allowing us to drag files out of Gmail messages and drop them onto our local folders.


With the upcoming extension app support in Google Chrome, it will divide between Gmail as a Web app and desktop email with permission to access additional local resources, and will eventually lead to Gmail startup times of "less than a second."
