Ottawa, Ontario (September 22, 2010) - MyFax, the world's fastest-growing Internet fax service, today announced the readers of tech and lifestyle blogs Gizmodo and Lifehacker voted MyFax the best Internet fax service. Lifehacker's Hive Five Feature originally asked readers which fax service they use; the five most popular services then went head-to-head in a poll asking readers to select the best. MyFax emerged the most favored Internet fax service with nearly 29 percent of more than 2,900 votes cast, seven percent more than its nearest competitor.
"Faxing is still core to the workflow of many industries, and because of that the Internet fax market is very competitive," said Steve Adams, vice president of marketing for Protus, the provider of MyFax. "The Hive Five readers were clear in their preference for MyFax. Their enthusiasm, along with feedback from our customers, is what drives us to deliver a great product and overall customer experience that is unmatched by our competitors."
Lifehacker's Hive Five Call for Contenders Feature, a staple of the blog, allows users to nominate the best products for a service, then vote on the five that receive the most recommendations. The site, which receives roughly 20 million visitors a month, is a leading online source for lifestyle improvement and enhancement of the online experience.
MyFax's #1 ranking comes on the heels of the release of MyFax's iPhone App release this summer. The new app gives faxers the ability to access critical faxes from their iPhone without having to open a browser or launch an email application.
