Gmail has had that little beta tag attached to it for so long that I don't even notice it anymore. It's been clear for a while now that Google has a different definition of 'beta' from the rest of the world. All of the Google Apps have been in beta since their release, despite being used by over 1.75 million companies from around the world. Folks have wondered for years now when Google's apps were going to come out of beta.
Apparently, the answer is today. Google just announced that they are taking off the proverbial training wheels and removing the beta tag from all of their apps.
This is only really news because of how surprising it is. Google isn't going to stop adding features or updating their apps, nor are they done developing and testing and innovating. According to the blog entry, their main reason for doing this was to entice more businesses to use their enterprise apps. Apparently big businesses don't like to run their day-to-day affairs on something labeled 'beta'. If you like the way the tag looks though you can enable it in your settings tab for a dose of nostalgia.
