Gmail is great and all that, but far from being market leader, it has been unable to even become the No 1 contender to Hotmail.
That honour still goes to Yahoo! Mail.
This despite Gmail being around for seven years. In fact in the future it could even become No 4 if Facebook Mail really takes off!
With Microsoft's acquisition of Skype, Google Talk too may find it difficult to be a market leader in the future.
