Happy Birthday, Gmail!

Gmail 5th birthdayIt’s Gmail’s 5th birthday today!

I can’t believe I’ve been using Gmail for 5 years already. I still remember the time when Gmail first launched, it was opened via invitation only. Each email account can only invite another 50 users, then the limit soon raised to 100 and at the end this awesome free service was open for everyone to use.

I love Gmail and I can’t live without it, you wanna know why?

  • Gmail is fast. Less page refresh is required.
  • Gmail allows personalization through Gmail Labs.
  • Gmail is smart. I love the way how it treats all emails with same subject title as conversations. I’ve already said goodbye to messy inbox since 5 years ago.
  • Gmail’s storage is increasing every second. It simply means Gmail grows together with you.
  • Gmail saves tons of my time. There are so many things I can do with it and I don’t even have to leave my browser, such as viewing all sorts of attachments, checking my schedule, chatting, etc.

I hope they keep improving Gmail in term of its features and security. Also, I hope Gmail will soon jump out from its beta version as I can’t believe it’s still in beta version after 5 years. Haha…

Keep up the good work, Gmail Team!
Happy birthday, Gmail!

    Gmail is pretty good now. Looks like anything google does, is like gold.
    I like it much better than yahoo. I think for a free email, gmail
    cannot be beat.

    Sorry to disagree but Gmail is top for compromising accts. To begin with it drops cookies that don’t clear. Leaves anyone or spambot access to your info. Once one acct is found all your remainder is open to compromising. Also recovering password is easy but reclaiming your acct is difficult to prove. How do I know? Happened to me 3x by the same person within 6 weeks and deleting/opening new accts. Finally stopped when I stopped using Gmail. No! I am not careless or use easy passwords.
