The one thing that I thought was really cool was the new Gmail javascript framework that is in the works. It pre-fetched the data from the individual messages and made the site lightning fast. Every click was instantaneous since the data was already on the client.

The webcast which ended doesn't seem to be available in an archived version yet, though if I understood it right it will be. Brian, I'm curious if you know more about what they said about Gmail 2.0 (if that's the new version they were talking about...?). Here's a quote from a NYT blog:

<<The Gmail demo has some interesting new features. First, Google promises that it will soon rebuild Gmail on a new Javascript architecture. What does it mean?

From what I can recall they talked about how they completely rewrote the Gmail javascript engine. He actually pulled it up on his computer and gave a demo and it was amazingly fast due to all the pre-fetching. He was able to keep clicking on the "next" button from within an email and the new emails would just appear instantaneously. I was very impressed. Visually it looked exactly the same but from what I can recall they said that the new engine will provide them with much more capabilities. That is about as far as they went with it from what I can recall. The only other thing they mentioned was the new support for IMAP (which i still dont have!!!)

Once the webcast is online we can see if I missed any details.
