Google Facts

Fact 1 –

The idea that there could be a better way to handle email caught the attention of a Google engineer who thought it might be a good “20 percent time” project. (Google requires engineers to spend a day a week on projects that interest them, unrelated to their day jobs). Millions of M&Ms later, Gmail was born.

Fact 2 –

Google believes people should be able to hold onto their mail forever. That’s why Gmail comes with 1,000 megabytes (1 gigabyte) of free storage – more than 100 times what most other free webmail services offer.

Who needs to delete emails when you have 1000 MB of storage.

Fact 3 –

During this testing period, the Gmail interface is only available in English. However, google is committed to making Gmail available to as many people in as many languages as possible. And Gmail accounts can already be used to read and send email in most languages.

Fact 4-

Gmail: leverage cross browser and cross platform DTHML and JavaScript to create a web app that is more dynamic and responsive and therefore is closer to a native application.
