Gmail Now Third Largest Webmail Service In US


Gmail nabbed the number three spot in the Webmail wars last month, edging past AOL to become the third largest service behind Yahoo and Live Hotmail. The Google-run service racked up 37 million uniques, squeaking past AOL’s 36.4 million, according to comScores numbers.

Gmail still has a little ways to go before it can challenge Windows Live Hotmail’s 47 million, and longer still before achieving Yahoo’s staggering 106 million monthly uniques.

2009 has seen a 25-percent increase for the Google owned site, which finally came out of beta, after five odd years. AOL, conversely, has dropped 22-percent.
