About Google Drive and Gmail

Google Drive is the free, cloud-based file storage service provided by US-based search giant Google, and Gmail is the free email service that Google has offered since 2004. The combined service can store up to 15 GB for a single user account. Users can receive emails of up to 50 MB, including attachments, and send emails up to 25 MB. For larger files, users can include share links from a location in their GDrive.

Users access Gmail via the web, and third-party applications can synchronize Gmail using POP or IMAP protocols. Gmail’s interface defaults to a conversation view and enables easy search functionality.

Gmail was among the first public sites to adopt Ajax, the programming methodology for creating asynchronous web applications. Gmail’s servers perform multi-purpose scans automatically, filtering out spam and malware, and appending context-sensitive ads.
