Gmail trounces AOL to take #3 web mail position


google-mail-logoThe latest not-really-that-important web statistics show that Google’s GMail web mail service is now the third largest in the US.

What’s more surprising is that it had to overtake AOL to get there.

AOL? Why do so many people still use AOL?

The top two webmail providers are Hotmail, with 47m unique users, and Yahoo! Mail, with a whopping 106m.

As with so many other services online, Google looks like it could be the one to beat, seeing a 25% growth in unique visitors over the past year, compared to Hotmail’s 8% increase and Yahoo’s 16%. (AOL dropped 22%. About time).

In fairness, though, this is something Yahoo! is doing pretty well. Perhaps Hotmail and Yahoo Mail should merge just to stave off GMail for a bit longer.
