Gmail Improvements

Gmail’s one year anniversary has brought us some pretty cool upgrades. First of all, Google has doubled everyone’s capacity to 2GB. I think that’s pretty impressive for a free service. But, Google is not content to stop at 2GB. Read on:

Storage is an important part of email, but that doesn’t mean you should have to worry about it. To celebrate our one-year birthday, we’re giving everyone one more gigabyte. But why stop the party there? Our plan is to continue growing your storage beyond 2GBs by giving you more space as we are able. We know that email will only become more important in people’s lives, and we want Gmail to keep up with our users and their needs. From Gmail, you can expect more.

That’s a pretty cool attitude in my opinion.

Another cool feature added today is Rich Text Formatting. I got a glimpse of this a few days ago and thought I was seeing things because it disappeared the next time I composed a message. Today it’s here to stay. I took a screenshot for you:

I’m not sure how much I’ll use this feature since I’m a plain text geek, but I’m sure the masses will love it.

Nice work, Google. (Learn more about Gmail)
