Superhuman with Rahul Vohra

The most popular email client is Gmail, the web-based email client from Google. Gmail is dominant, but that dominance has come at a price, namely speed. Gmail caters to the lowest common denominator, serving a large ecosystem of use cases and plugins. This makes for a slow overall performance.

Superhuman is an email client built for power users. Rahul Vohra is the founder of Superhuman, and joins the show to talk about the design and engineering of an email client that is made to be fast.
