Rob Pegoraro - Web-Mail Tests Without End - washingtonpost.com

Timely reality check -- continues with a Gmail review 

Gmail ( http://gmail.com) has now spent 33 months in this testing phase, while Yahoo Mail ( http://mail.yahoo.com) and the Hotmail successor Live Mail ( http://mail.live.com) have lasted about 16 and 14 months, respectively.

Apparently, it now takes more time to finish developing a Web site than a Web browser -- or even an entire operating system. (Not even Windows Vista has undergone such a lengthy public audition.)
