Gmail becomes world’s most popular webmail

Friday, November 2nd, 2012 11:42:17 by

Eight years ever since its inception, Gmail has surpassed the beloved mailing server, Hotmail. Gmail has been created by Sabeer Bhatia and Jack Smith in 1996, but a year later acquired by Microsoft who, over the years has changed
its name.

A year ago, Google had claimed to be number one in the bussines with their data but now the figures are supported by a neutral signature, ComScore, which measures the web traffic.

According to the source, Gmail had 287.9 million unique visitors, ending a reign that ended Hotmail 286.2 million. The success of Google mail has been added to the Chrome browser, launched in 2008, which surpassed the Explorer-like property of Microsof Hotmail.

Third place goes to Yahoo mail, another veteran in the service, with 281.7 million visitors. However, Yahoo is the leader in the U.S. with 76.7 million, followed by Gmail (69.1 million) and Hotmail (35.5 million).

The Google operating systems for mobile phones, with Android, over Apple’s iOS, and the stranglehold on the web advertising market, both on computers and in mobile phones.

Of course, almost from birth, Google dominates the area as compared to some other search engines, far above Bing (Microsoft), Yahoo or Safari (Apple).

For now, the only setback is the Chrome operating system for computers, low penetration, and with their devices, both computers, tablets and phones as Nexus.
