Google Finally Rips the Beta Bandaid Off of Apps, Including GMail

You probably don’t even notice it anymore. You know, the little Beta tags that Google attaches to its Apps like GMail and Google Talk. But it’s been there, faithfully reminding anyone who’s really cared that the products weren’t technically ready for prime time.

Now, Google has finally come to the place where they feel okay about removing the label. So, beginning today, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Talk will lose the “Beta” that has been accompanying their logos for years.

How do you feel about the change? Are you going through Beta withdrawal? Let us know by leaving a comment.
