Gmail即将要去掉Beta标签?

 

         突然发现,阿七涂画有一周没有写文章了!或许最近没有很多时间来整理好的文章,于是一直在拖。其实最近有2,3个主题已经想写了,只是没整理出来!

         刚才发现一个关于Gmail的说法:Gmail即将要去掉Beta标签。5年前,Gmail产生,当时附加Beta标签。然后5年后,不说不觉得,的确现在Beta标签还是有。抓图如下:

          于是有个词在流传:无限测试周期。Google的Beta标签具体代表着什么?这也是探讨的问题。不过比较新的Chrome浏览器却没有Beta标签了。

           Google负责企业产品的产品经理主管Matt Glotzbach说,这个小问题将在不远的未来解决,承认“无限测试周期”可能会损害消费者和企业对其在线服务的信心。

Ps,英文如下:

Google is considering removing the beta tag from Gmail – and other online services – a mere five years after it was first launched.
Google has become somewhat synonymous with seemingly endless beta cycles. Many of the company’s most famous services, including Gmail, Docs and Calendar all still carry the beta tag.

By contrast, the company’s Chrome browser was brought out of beta after only 100 days and has already raced to version two, despite only launching in September.

Google now admits the eternal beta cycles could be damaging consumer and business confidence in its online apps.

“It’s a minor annoyance and something you’ll see addressed in the not-too-distant future,” says Matt Glotzbach, product management director for Google’s enterprise products, according to a report on ComputerWorld.

Pressed for further details, Google Docs product manager Jonathan Rochelle claimed: “We’re going to deal with that very soon; we’re going to figure out a way to fix that.”

Google’s motivation for keeping products in beta has never been clear, with the company continually insisting that it will remove the tags when the products are ready.

The suggested move out of beta comes in the wake of two recent Google outages, which have seen the search engine and Gmail suffer from rare periods of downtime.
