Im moving away from Hotmail / Live, and am undecided between these two alternatives.

GMail looks rather basic, but is pretty quick and has loads of storage.

GMX is more flashy with its AJAX and looks very promising, but could easily turn into a slow, bloated Hotmail clone.

What are your thoughts?

Damn... should have made this a poll.

Got it. To the people who are saying GMail, have you used GMX before?

GMX is a more bloated & slow Windows Live Mail/Yahoo!Mail clone....

GMail. I can log in with just my username without the need to fully specify the @xxxx.com. Gmail doesn't annoyingly open up an extra window to display.

And these two items are even before I have actually used my newly-created GMX account.

I just watched the GMX intro tour. It looks pretty nice. I haven't tried it though, and its only in Beta...so not sure how real it is or if those features will stay that way.

I see The Canadian above me posted that its bloated.

Just tried out GMX. it is nice but seems a lot slower than gmail. I just love gmails simplistic interface, lightning fast, and just works.

@ KZWings I'm diggin your sig :)

GMail is integrated with Google Docs, so GMail gets a vote from me!

EDIT: ^&#$%^# I accidentally voted for GMX...

I've had an account on it for many moons, I never use it because it's so slow even on broadband (xDSL & cable); granted I wish Gmail had some features that GMX and other web-based email clients have....
