Forget Gmail, why is google groups beta? That service is primordial in internet time, I still type in deja and land there.


Must be a google thing

I wonder what more they need to do. I've never had a glitch or problem of any sort. The interface is easy to use. The only thing I wish they'd add is the ability to set default formatting rather than type your note and "manually format" by highlighting and changing text every time you write a message.

Edit: Oh yeah. I want a calendar like Yahoo's got as well.

It's beta because they aren't done testing it. That's the simple answer.

Interesting.

What's the benefit of NOT making it available to everyone though?

I just find it odd that it's been in beta so long. I've been using it since Niner gave me an account, oh, probably more than a year ago. It rocks.

Re: Why is Gmail still in beta?

you technically cannot have offer a public email service that is by invitation only, but if you call it beta then it is a controlled test by selected participants...thus the reason you can't get gmail unless you know someone


...pure speculation there though
