When I opened up Sublime to start writing this article, I realized I haven’t updated this blog since October of 2013! Things have been pretty busy for me lately. I just haven’t had a lot of time for personal blogging. A lot of my busy time is spent managing emails. Usually this consists of trying to keep my inbox clean. This can be a full time job in and of itself.
At some point, I can’t remmember the exact release, OSX’s Mail.app became unusable. Maybe it has always been unusable and I just suffered longer than most. I discovered Sparrow and fell in love with the simplicity of it just before Google bought it and subsequently, killed it (they stopped pushing updates). Thanks Sparrow team and Google!
All my email is actually through Google Apps so I just went back to the browser. If you haven’t had 4 email accounts running in 4 different tabs all day and looked at your memory usage, I’d encourage you to do so. You’d stop keeping those tabs open. Horrible. So I went on the hunt for a new (lightweight) client.
