Gmail is based on a proprietary technology that differs from IMAP. Because of this, Gmail works in a really different way compared to a regular, IMAP provider.

That being said, Gmail supports IMAP. But in a really weird way.

Because of this specificity, I would categorize clients as IMAP-centric, or as Gmail-centric.
