You don’t need to change a thing right now — we just wanted you to let you know about the closure as soon as possible. We’ll provide more details about closing GeoCities and how to save your site data this summer, and we will update the help center with more details at that time”

GMail or GMail BETA?

March 24th, 2009 6 comments


GMail BETA was released on 01 Apr 2004 and currently being used by a huge number of people. GMail BETA will be celebrating it’s 5th anniversary on coming 01 April 2009.

The initial launch was with subscriptions that are based on invitations. Few years latter it was open to public which significantly increased the number of GMail users.

However still it will be with the BETA label. Isn’t strange to have BETA for a product which is doing good(?) over five years?

Although GMail BETA often announces new features it will still have the label BETA with it.

What is the big deal in the BETA?
Well, having a bug in stable release is much different than having a bug in BETA release. Isn’t?

If this continues for few more years, no wonder if, GMail would be called as GMail BETA.
