Google have already claimed victory by their own numbers with over 425 million active users in June 2012, up from 350 million in January. comScore's numbers were 289 million at the time, but comScore's numbers don't include mobile usage - which is a huge, huge chunk of users.

 

Yahoo Mail came in third place with 281.7 million active users in October, and despite its third position in world ranking, they are still number one in the US. With 76.7 million active users in the US, versus Gmail's 69.1 million and Hotmail's 35.5 million.
