Gmail debuted exactly 10 years ago this April Fool’s Day. It was real, and ever since, the Web was never the same!

Gmail is the most popular email service in the world, it was founded 1st of April 2004 – majority of the people thinks Gmail is April fool of a thing, but they are wrong because it came and conquered the email industry. A recent study by Digital Trends shows that Gmail users are far better than other email service providers’ user base.
