Webmail.us Provides AJAX Alternative to Desktop Email Software

Replaces Legacy Software with Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) framework

Webmail.us, provider of email hosting services to more than 23,000 businesses, has released the fourth generation of its webmail platform with the goal of providing an alternative to desktop email software. The new platform replaces legacy software with an Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) framework that creates a faster experience for webmail users.

Webmail.us said the new webmail platform provides speed and performance improvements for all email-related aspects of webmail, including the calendar, task list manager, RSS feed reader, contact manager, and company directory. The company will continue to focus on the speed of webmail as well as the addition of new features.

“When we built our first generation webmail platform, the goal was to provide users with the ability to check email when they didn’t have access to their desktop email software, like Microsoft Outlook,” explained Patrick Matthews, chief executive officer of Webmail.us. “But now we see an increased demand from our customers for a web-based alternative to desktop email software, so we’re putting a lot of product development resources into creating an experience on the web that rivals the desktop.”

Webmail.us has added more than 16,000 businesses to its email hosting system in the last twelve months.
