I love Gmail, it's the best online mail program that I've ever used.

Happy birthday Gmail!

But why is it still in beta after five years?!

I guess some of the new features that come every now and often with Gmail is in Beta. But Gmail itself which has been for over a period of 5 years should of course be a stable one.

Anyways, Congratulations Gmail!

http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2009/07/gmail-leaves-beta-launches-back-to-beta.html:

However, we realize that after five years, this leaves some of you wrestling with some tough questions. How will you ever get used to using Gmail without that familiar grey "BETA" text greeting you when you log in everyday? What example will you cite the next time you make an internet joke about perpetual betas? Don't despair... for those of you long-time Gmail-ers who might feel some separation anxiety, we've got a solution. Just go to Settings, click on Labs, turn on "Back to Beta," and it'll be like Gmail never left beta at all.
