redinferno

Con

Burden of proof is on my opponent and my opponent has stated no arguments. I will only put forward one contention in this round and may introduce more in the second round depending on how my opponent responds.

Security: Gmail has more effective spam filters.
Also, some spammers use image based spams to get past text filters. Yahoo uses these ineffectively.
Debate Round No. 1

As a portal Yahoo is better than gmail.
The reading pane gets us through email faster. Facility of tabbed messages is provided which helps toggle between your inbox and messages. We can move messages to folders with a flick of a wrist.

these are just a few features of yahoo mail for my worthy opponent...

Con

Gmail:
Faster than Yahoo
UI is costimizable

In addition Gmail has most of the features pointed out by my opponent.

Plus the effective spam filtering is more valuable than than Yahoos extra features.

I'd also like to mention that Yahoo charges for POP service making it unusable from an email application from outlook or Thunderbird if you don't want to pay.

The features I mentioned are'nt provided by gmail as you said friend.
Yahoo :
We can search through emails and attachments through enhanced search. Plus we automatically get to know when new messages arrive. Too we have keyboard shortcuts here...things get completed faster.
And all the features given by me in the second and in this round are not at all provided by gmail. Thus, yahoo is definitely better than gmail. :)

Con

The spam filtering + ability to access email from your desktop with outlook/thunderbird is much more useful the advantages you mentioned.

My opponent claims that Gmail lacks these features:
"The reading pane gets us through email faster. Facility of tabbed messages is provided which helps toggle between your inbox and messages. We can move messages to folders with a flick of a wrist."

With gmail moving a messagse to a folder involves selecting them, and then selecting the folder you want to move them to.

Googles AJAX[1] is different from Yahoos AJAX. With Gmail messages are loaded beforehand and once you click the message it doesn't load a new webpage - It just switches to the message that loaded earlier. Once you click back to inbox, it doesn't reload the inbox. It just switches to it.

This is more effective than Yahoo Mails reading tab. With the reading tab the screen is divided leaving you with little space and when you click on a message you have to wait a second for it to load.

My opponent also mentioned searching email in her argument. Gmail is provided by Google. It has searches too.

Becausee advantages of Gmail that I mentioned, mainly spam filtering, are more useful than what she mentioned that Gmail doesn't have plus Yahoo lack of POP3 support, vote Con.
