After five years... of testing (and joking)

Gmail Leaves Beta [gmailblog.blogspot.com]
|The end result (many visible and invisible changes later) is that today, beta is a thing of the past. Not just for Gmail, but for all of Google Apps — Gmail, Calendar, Docs, and Talk. |
Wondering if, after 5 years, it's the ding of Bing that removed the Google Beta.

The "back to beta" setting to soothe the soul is pretty funny :P

Wow, who would have predicted this?

well, this could be a coincidence but (yesterday, the 7th) my gmail chat does not function at all. My chat list had disappeared and I cannot change my status. Also, I got a notice about labels but "its now on the left" I had it set to the right, I can no longer change this.
(latest version of Firefox 3.5)
okay, now that I posted this it works, go figure. However, I would prefer labels on the right option like it was.

If they're going after the corporate market with all their Apps, then they finally realized that no major IT department is going to implement a product with a beta label on something as mission critical as e-mail.

In terms of support quality they have not even reached beta level.
Gmail is superb, but the entire service support structure is too stingy and light years behind in order to convince companies to invest.

Tossing the excuse shield, seems like Google is gearing up to destroy Microsoft on all fronts. Good job G.
