Tried Thunderbird, but I didn't like the UI and how it synced my mail. Geary, on the other hand, is simple, sleek and fast. Recommend.

about Geary and Gmail, Google Chrome Jul 2014

All the other email clients have problems with the way gmail is handeling labels, this one is the only one except the official Chrome extension that keeps your labels as labels and so it's a perfect way how to have gmail stored localy. Thumbs up.
