An advantage of Cloud Connect was that files could be easily accessed and edited from the drive without having to save all your drive contents locally.

binarybum writes: Seamonkey has released it's first official non-beta release (Candidate 1) of it's firefox 3 engine base integrated browser. Very slick and runs email and web with less memory than two separate apps.
binarybum writes: "SeaMonkey 2.0 Beta 2 combines a state-of-the-art web browser based on the same core as Firefox 3.5.3 with a solid email and newsgroups client and a simple HTML editor, rounding the experience with web development tools and IRC chat. It now includes tabbed email. Seamonkey often takes up much less memory than running firefox and a separate mail client."
