Google Acquires Our Favorite Email Client Sparrow

I'm a (was?) Huge fan of Sparrow the uber clean email client popularized on the mac, today brings huge news that they have been acquired by Google. I'm cautiously optimistic that Google will incorporate or improve on the fantastic foundation of Sparrow, however I'm pessimistic on the existing mac and ios application based on this quote from the Sparrow CEO, "We will continue to make available our existing products, and we will provide support and critical updates to our users. However, as we’ll be busy with new projects at Google, we do not plan to release new features for the Sparrow apps.".

Hey existing Sparrow users, will you jump ship for another client? If so what alternatives are you considering? Let us know in the comments.
