What once started as an internal tool for Google employees,Five years ago yesterday on April Fools day, was launched and christened as Gmail,now a full fledged email service. AJAX enabled,simplistic interface,astounding functionality and that Google touch..Gmail is simply the best.Gmail is now used by tens of millions of people around the world in 52 languages.
In honor of the occasion,a little cake is displayed on the Gmail homepage today.
I remember getting the invitation code to Gmail from my friend Prateek and i switched from my hotmail account to the all new Gmail which revolutionized the email services by providing 1 GB space at that time,streamlined interface and powerful search integration.
And Google continues to make innovations in the business by introducing new features and integrating them in Gmail. You can try them by enabling Labs option in Gmail and they are worth your attention (I m dead serious) and In all seriousness, Gmail has made our lives a lot easier and I wish they keep it that way :)
Happy Birthday Gmail..many Many Happy Returns of the day :P
