    I always wondered why iCloud.com is designed so badly

    Mail just doesn't work, terrible graphic and functionality

    Notes and Reminder? When are we going to see them on iCloud.com? If I'm using a Windows I can't access to my stuff most of the time.

    No updates since it's launch I didn't see a single update or a sign or improvement on iCloud.com

    Well I like how iCloud works and I find it very useful to keep my devices on sync, but I can't get why they made such a terrible site.

    Do you have the same impression?

    And yet, of your three complaints:

    1) Mail - Works for me. Any specific issues?
    2) Notes and Reminders - Added.
    3) No updates - There have been updates.

    Mail it's slow, ugly and has way less features than gmail.

    Yeah they added Notes + Reminders, I'm happy about it, even if they could do that much faster imo. You can't open them as fast as you would like to btw.

    The only updates I saw has been the introduction of the 2 app mentioned above, for updates I also mean new design, new features & better stability..

    I'm still using it because I have faith in Apple but need to be updated and restyled sometimes...

    IMO, gmail exists only to generate revenue for Google. Having a gazillion features and being uber-fast are two ways that it differentiates itself from the competition (Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, etc).

    iCloud email differentiates itself (again, IMO) by being visually similar to the Mail.app in OS X and iOS, and being easy to use (to the point that it's not very advanced when it comes to features). If you've seen the visual changes to Mail.app in Mavericks and iOS 7, I think you'll see what to expect in iCloud.

    There's still hope that the iCloud web interface will get faster, but I wouldn't hold my breath expecting the visual look to differentiate greatly from the iOS/OS X look of these apps.
