GMail is one. Long live GMail

I had an inkling that there would be some updates to GMail today. And sure enough, I loaded up the page at college and I see this —

Infinity+1

OK, in all seriousness, here’s the news. GMail’s storage space is now up to 2Gb (which does not matter). And they seem to be promising to keep adding more space as the user’s keep filling up their inboxes, which does matter.

Their home page features some cool Javascript to show the update. Its all for show, if you look through the code, you’ll see that there’s a counter that will keep updating until it reaches 2Gb.

Other than that, the big news is that GMail finally lets you compose HTML formatted mails. I’ve quite gotten used to writing stuff in plain text — I even write this blog in text. But it’s always nice to have options.
