best email client for gmail?

So i've heard sparrow is dead now - what else is there for gmail? I'm sick of their web interface - its awful. But Mail.app seems clunky and doesn't give me the best feature of gmail - the "send and archive" button, allowing me to keep my inbox clean and tidy easily.

Any other suggestions? Or plugins that fix Mail.app?

Sparrow isn't dead, they just pushed out some bugfixes. There will be no new features, but it's not dead. I still use it and it's as great as ever. Just because Google bought it doesn't mean that you have to jump the ship.

wow, sparrow isn't dead - and it's all i'll ever want from my email client.

I have tried:
Entourage + Outlook
Apple Mail
Postbox
mailplane
+
thunderbird

Sparrow is by far the best for me and I would think most others too.

It's cheap, lite, runs in the menubar...

there is a lite version with adds available for you to try out too.

Sparrow is not dead.
