Gmail

Google's Gmail is one of the most popular webmail services worldwide, recently edging out Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail in ComScore data of unique visitors. Really, it's no wonder that so many are using it, given the service's utility, openness to add-ons, and all around reliability. A simple, user-friendly front end hides numerous configurable options, and many add-ons can be bolted on to the default experience to provide loads of extra utilities. Read on for some neat Gmail tips, as well as some of our favorite extensions, and feel free to share some of your own favorites in the comments section below!

    I REFUSE to "read" any 'article' in powerpoint format, and will continue to do so.
    I learned how to read a long time ago.
    Save this for the mouth-breathing, room-temperature-IQ, game-playing 'readers' who go to the bookstore to catch up on the latest comic books.
    AND PASS THIS ALONG TO YOUR EDITORS!

    Don't know whether to give jimmike a Thumbs Up or Down. I don't like this style of article either since click through to read is just plain inconvenient given where I usually read. But I learned long ago that you just have to hit the print button, if you can find one, to get a one page version of the article. The format might be good for someone reading on a phone (but then again having so many images just chews up your data allowance) but web designers tend to design simply because they can and don't care about the typical user's experience. Then again their illogical take on the situation is that most people that read in this format like it. They never consider that a large number of people, like jimmike and me, simply skip the article because it isn't in a reader friendly format. They forget that most people have to buy their own equipment and it is often over two years old and incapable of quickly loading graphically intense pages.
