Email has been around in one form or another since the 1960s, before the Internet was even born. Today, it is the most crucial tool for communication online. There are thousands of tools for email now, but this week we’re specifically pitting desktop email vs. webmail by having you vote between Google Gmail and Microsoft Outlook.

Gmail on the other hand represents the rapid advance of online email technology, which allows you to access your inbox from anywhere in the world.
