Gmail Dock is not your ordinary Gmail client. It is designed with the realization that the best way to do most tasks in Gmail is to use the web.
The web-based Gmail client gets new features before most desktop clients, and it provides a great user experience. Still, it would be nice if Gmail integrated more deeply with Mac OS X. That’s what Gmail Dock is about.
