POP goes Gmail

A gig of Web-based e-mail is all well and good, but lot of other people, including me, want to be able to download messages to our desktops.

According to a MacCentral story (via Y!), Google is planning to give Gmail POP3 support as well as antivirus protection. Kudos to Google for working on this — I think it definitely adds value to their product because I’m definitely more willing to use their service.
