By • 6:00 am, August 9, 2013 • I know a guy who opens the same 25 or so tabs each day, checking email, news, websites he likes to read, etc. I often ask him why he doesn’t just use RSS or something, but he usually mumbles about liking the layouts of individual web pages.
When trying to open a link directly within the gmail app, it opens in safari instead of chrome. This used work just fine until the latest update of gmail. I looked in the gmail settings under google apps, to use the app instead of the browser. I backed Kiwi for Gmail which was originally called Gmail for Mac on Kickstarter, they asked for USD 20.000 and they got more than double of that USD 42.202, so people is really interested on finding a solution to better manage their Gmail accounts.
Advertisement Whatever. My friend likes to open a ton of tabs every day, and he does so with a bookmarked folder full of those tabs. Now, he created this bookmark folder manually, but there’s an easier way, using either Safari or Chrome Here’s how. In Safari, open as many tabs as you want to bookmark, all at once. Once they’re all open, head up to the Bookmarks menu to select “Add Bookmarks for these __ tabs.” The blank space will fill in with the number of tabs you have open. Select that, and Safari will drop down a sheet to create and name a Bookmarks Folder.
Type in a name for the new folder and choose a spot to save the folder using the drop down menu just above. Safari will save the folder with the Auto-Click enabled, meaning that when you click on it, instead of opening up like a normal bookmark folder, it will open all the links contained within as tabs. Chrome has a similar feature, also in the Bookmarks folder. The menu item is called “Bookmark all tabs” and, once selected, will create a bookmarks folder as well.
This one, however, will behave the same as any other bookmarks folder, and won’t auto-open in tabs. To open it all in tabs in the same window, simply right click on the new bookmarks folder and choose “Open all Bookmarks in a New Window.” Now you’ll have an easy way to open those several websites you need opened every day. Pretty neat, right?
No, we are not a standalone browser with Gmail in a window. We wouldn’t have been as excited as we were if it had been as easy as that. We were motivated by our passion for great software, design, and attention to detail. That is hard to achieve, but we think we got it in Kiwi for Gmail.
Kiwi for Gmail takes Gmail and puts it inside an app that is robust enough to serve as a desktop replacement for Mail, Outlook, AirMail, or Mailbox, which no one has done before on the desktop. It has three major components: • A heavily modified browser component, tailored in hundreds of ways specifically for Gmail • A separate, full email client that sits around that browser component and makes much of our app work • An interface layer that seamlessly integrates those two pieces together. There are a handful of apps out there that allow you to try to use Gmail as a standalone program on the desktop, and we fully agree with their vision of trying to take Gmail out of the browser so you can use it as a desktop app.
But while this was their aim, our motivation to build Kiwi for Gmail grew as a direct result of our frustration with both a user experience and level of technical quality that we felt was ultimately lacking. Technically, by far most of the difference between our app and these is due to the fact that under the hood, our app isn't based on as a single-site browser implementation like theirs are.

Much of the very hard work we've done over the past 2 years has been to take a completely different approach, which uniquely suited to turning Gmail into a high-fidelity desktop application. In terms of features, there is much that is different as well. We have a uniquely streamlined, intuitive, and graceful UI, we have important-only notifications, entirely unique multiple accounts implementation, actual Drive attachment support, and desktop integration is either more robust or entirely unique to our app compared to these others, we let you use the app as a default email client, and there are many details beyond these.
