After years of using Gmail, I am deciding to switch to outlook .com as my primary email. Gmail is a good email provider, but its sluggish at times, it receives massive amounts of spam, its messy looking. Outlook seems safer, it has a cleaner interface, its very fast and responsive, it doesn't read emails to deliver ads. Outlook.com's interface is also very modern in contrast to gmail which seems like its stuck in 2005. There are perks of using outlook also like its interwoven into Windows 8.
Easy to use
Many good features
None so far.
I highly recommend outlook.com, if your sick of gmail and are looking for something fresher, safer and more reliable, switch to outlook. You can use either @live.com, @Hotmail.com or @outlook.com for your email address.
