Hooray, no spam here!
About a week ago I got Gmail (Thanks to Pam). My thoughts?
I like the look of Gmail, it’s very clean and there are no ‘buy this kitten now and get another one free’ banner ads which tend to distract you. I don’t even mind the text ads (which I’ve started using at kitta.net a few day ago, I too have sold out just like Sergio).
And they weren’t lying when they said it’s fast, I wasn’t sure if the first few emails I set were actaully sent, due to its fastness. It also seems to refresh the window if left open. I’m pretty sure Hotmail or Yahoo don’t do this (I could be wrong though, so don’t hurt me with sharp objects) and it’s a nice feature.
I’m not sure how it goes with spam, since I’ve received none so far, the “Hooray, no spam here!” message not only makes me laugh, but also sigh in relief.
The spell check is pretty damn good, although I’d like to see an option where the user could choose other languages, it keeps telling me to spell colour as ‘color’ and jewellery as ‘jewelry’.
Well, that’s my thoughts on Gmail so far. Feel free to email me so I can beta some more, I haven’t received many emails yet and I’d like to test it out a bit more. My address is:

(Note: I do not, repeat DO NOT, have any Gmail invites yet, so please don’t ask me for one. If and when I do receive any invites they will be given to family and friends who’ve been bugging me for the last week about them.)
