Webware 100 winner: Gmail

Gmail is Google's free Web mail.

      Gmail is Google's Web-based e-mail service. It was one of the first e-mail services to offer users 1GB of storage space for their e-mails at a time when others were offering just a few megabytes. One of the reasons Gmail has become so popular is its sorting system, which lets users simply leave e-mail in their in-box. Instead of organizing things in folders, Gmail has employed a filtering system, which essentially lets users automatically tag and sort through incoming e-mail.

      In recent years, Gmail has continuously increased its available storage space in excess of 6GB, and has integrated other Google services such as instant messaging from Google Talk and AOL's AIM.
