I want to trust Gmail, but it needs to be reliable.
I’ve been thinking about buying Google Apps Premier Edition ($50 / account / year), but every time I start to do more research, something like this happens. I got this error message when trying to access Gmail:
This seems to be taking longer than usual.
If you are using a slow Internet connection, you can wait a bit longer for this page to finish loading, or just use basic HTML view for now.
If you are using your normal Internet connection and you usually get past this loading step without any problems, please refresh this page in your browser. If you continue to have trouble loading your account, please visit the help center for troubleshooting information.
Plus I have multiple Google accounts (one for Google Reader, another for Gmail) and Google doesn’t let you merge accounts. This is not my fault. Separate accounts were created before Google came up with the (novel?) idea of a centralized Google account. It’s also baffling that there is no built-in way to import email to Gmail.
So I’m on the fence. I want trust trust Gmail, but it needs to be reliable.
