Yes I have finally got my invitation to beta test Gmail and yes I it works as advertised 🙂
I can honestly say I am enjoying it, there is just so much that has been done to improve the way we interact with webmail systems that I will most probably scratch my hotmail account (which I have had for over 6 years) altogether.
A few things that still need to be done that I would like to see:
- Save email drafts (this feature has yet to make an appearance in Gmail)
- Ability to delete attachments from emails
- Allow labels to be made into different colors
Things done well:
- God damn I love Hot Keys, they are not enabled by default (SWITCH IT ON, you have no idea what you are missing!!)
- Viewing emails as conversations (outstanding stuff).
- 1GB of space (you just can not go wrong there).
Yes I am enjoying my Gmail tremendously, it is going to be very exciting when it goes public.
