Gmail on Windows 8(.1) users...

How do you all get your Gmail on Windows 8?

Anyone use the Mail app? I tried it very briefly, detested it - even ignoring the lack of label support etc.

So I'm just using Chrome on desktop as always (with a --app= modifier), but I would like to use a 'Modern' app if anyone had tips for making Mail a bit neater.

To be honest, I'd just really like Google to make a Gmail app for Windows 8. I don't see how I could ever get a Surface or similar without.
