I haven't used my gMail account all that much. However, from what I have seen of it, personally, I barely even notice the ads in the first place. I don't know perhaps if my brain has become so attuned to ads (the folly of using Internet Explorer instead of something like Mozilla at work, sigh), or if they're not that obtrusive in the first place. I don't really have much to test this out either, but from my own, limited experience, they're not terribly bad.

If anyone wants to check it out, I just got 6 invites so PM me if you want to try out the service and judge for yourself.

I use gmail from time to time, though I have 6 invitations, and when I click the "invite someone" link, it doesn't work. Same thing happens when I click the 'contacts' button - nothing. Aside from that I suppose it's good, but I want to invite some people sigh.

It's probably because whatever browser you are using doesn't like it because both of those open a pop up window. I like the gmail because of the way it keeps the mail in its own conversation, Don't even notice or look at the advertisements.

Well...I got it, but I rarely use it...I guess the sheer amount of storage is great...

If anyone could send me an invite, I would forever be in their debt! I've got quite a bit of things I have to pack from my current computer but no means of sending large files (and no CD RW drive either, etc.) to myself.

The longer you use gmail (have it, and send/receive stuff with it), the more invites become available to you.

Mei Zhen, send me a PM if you still want one.
