Amazing, time does fly by! 6 years ago, the 1st of April 2004 Gmail was launched as an invite-only beta, creating a revolution in the webmail space.
What makes it so famous is the decision to keep their webmail invite-only which kept spammers away. As of today Gmail does do a good way of keeping unwanted emails out of your inbox. Furthermore by offering storage capacity of 1GB per user, Gmail pushed all competitors away.
Today Gmail is one of the most popular webmail clients in the world. It offers over 7400 MB of free storage to users and it has been the foundation for other Google services such as Google Talk, Google Apps and Google Buzz.
Thank you Gmail for making ’emailing’ a pleasure and a necessity!
