When GMAIL started 8 years ago, we were astounded that the King of Search would graciously offer us 1GB of free storage. After all, the big players (like Hotmail and Yahoo) were offering a paltry 25-50MB. Why would we EVER need 1 GB of storage?
Well just a couple of years later, the King of Search has yet again blessed its citizens by offering them an additional 2.5GB of storage bumping users to 10GB of GMAIL space.
Here is the original Google blog post about the increase.
Enjoy your new freedom and breathe free (at least for a little while longer).
