The worlds most popular search engine GOOGLE has stepped forward to provide users with free web-based email- Gmail.
Unlike other free web-based emails Google will interconnect its email with its advanced searching functions as well as to provide a whopping one gigabyte of storage.
"Google believes people should be able to hold onto their mail forever", the company said. That's why Gmail comes with 1,000 megabytes (one gigabyte) of free storage - more than 100 times what most other free webmail services offer."
