Google Opens Gmail For Everyone

It appears now that Google has opened up the Gmail “Beta” to everyone to sign-up for. This has been reported many times before, but I myself have never seen the Sign-up Link on Gmail’s homepage. But, after logging out of Gmail earlier today, I noticed the content had been changed from the “announcement” of the Gmail App for Cell Phones to more of a “list” of cool Gmail features, and there was a sign-up link under the login box. That’s right, a sign-up link. Shocking, indeed. The sign-up link is here:

http://mail.google.com/mail/signup

Funny enough, when logged into Gmail, there is still a little box on the left hand side for “Invites”. Maybe this will become “Tell People About Gmail”?

Now you no longer have a reason not to switch to Gmail. 😛 Gmail has lots of space (2.8GB+), a good email search, it’s integrated with Google Talk, it has a nice Cell Phone Application and you can easily switch from other popular email providers. You also get things like free POP access, more storage everyday, etc. 😀

Here’s a screenshot of the Gmail homepage, for proof of the Sign-up link:

Gmail Now Open For Public Sign-Up

Update [February 16, 2007]: I found this on Google’s Blog:

Which says that Gmail has been opened up for all users, worldwide, to register a Gmail account, without an Invite. Sweet, huh?
