I hate switching email addresses, so I’ve been avoiding gmail for a long time…The more I play with it, the more impressed I am though, and all my friends are on chat.
I’m sick enough of yahoo’s horrible search options (the refine options are great, but I can’t find any easy way to quickly search from:someone and with the subject:something else).
It’s also been occurring to me that the email I have on web based services has been the safest and most reliable of any email I’ve had; I’ve lost thousands and thousands from old dead hard drives.
I found this article on uploading ALL of your old mail to gmail, including old outlook PST files and yahoo accounts using IMAP, which makes me definitely want to try using it. (Where was that email I wrote my sister in 2001…damn you outlook search!)
I’m also looking for a way to sync my bookmarks between all browsers. Some people are using gmail for that as well. I’m sick of using Delicious. I’m looking into Google Browser Sync but it’s only for firefox — I use several browsers. I hear foxmarks is good too. I’m just sick of having bookmarks all over the place. I’ll post more as I find better solutions.
Safari Bookmarks Exporter will supposedly sync all browsers with your safari bookmarks, and .Mac and iSync will sync safari bookmarks across multiple macs. Still looking for a FAST web based solution though.
