    The popularity of Gmail in India cannot be denied, but even we were a bit surprised by a new report that stated it has already gone past Yahoo! Mail as the country’s most preferred email service.
     
    LiveMint is reporting that Internet user measurement and analytics platform agency ViziSense is crowning Gmail as the numero uno email service, ending Yahoo! Mail’s 10-year reign at the top.

    I think google needs to do something about the tons of spam mail making way into my inbox. in that sense, yahoo is much better.

    Yahoo! is really nice. But the usability and easiness of GMail can't be denied.

    Yahoo! gives me the nostalgic feeling, cannot deny the simplicity of Google. Yahoo!'s cool new features might give them an edge, but it is for sure that more cool features like wave are coming in future.

    There's no surprise as gmail offers a lot of features virtually costing not a single penny :p

    BTW, I have both gmail and yahoo mail id's but I got more spams in yahoo. actually I use my yahoo account to mark spam mails.

    With gmail I had not got any spam mail yet :p

    Well, the spam filter is nice in gmail. Gmail labs FTW. I left Yahoo long back. Its a bandwidth hog and used to affect speed a lot back when I had a dialup conn. Basic HTML view of gmail is cool for dialup net users. :)

    ^^ Yup, Very True. yahoo mail is a bandwidth hog. With the new looking style it's even more on that.

    BTW, even nowadays I use gmail's basic HTML view :p
