tortoiseGmail is a good thing but it’s not celebrating its fifth birthday in style. It may be me or my broadband connection but for two hours I couldn’t get a connection to Gmail and an email from three hours ago has only turned up. And, sadly, this isn’t the first time. While GigaOm is rightly marking the birthday, and Gmail is my number one email, I’m still not happy with the webmail interface and while the percentage of availability is probably top notch, Google set the bar pretty high for itself and I expect more from them.

And the design, I mean have they user tested it? The page layout and button design are simply not good enough for a top tier product, free or not. Still I’m sure the Google data says otherwise…
