I have a majority of my work mails on the outlook/Hotmail server for a while now. Can anyone give me a fair comparison in terms of performance between outlook and other mail clients? I would like to access the contents of my outlook from my Gmail. Is that possible? Will that cause any loss of data?

Outlook and other mail servers have different parameters. Both are good at their place. The use depends on business need. Some of comparison points are given below.
1. Outlook is free personal email service from Microsoft. Gmail is free personal email service from Google.
2. Outlook can be installed on windows Operating system. Gmail is browser based.
3. You can access Gmail from any device provided that you have internet connection and browser. Whereas, outlook, if installed on windows system, then it can be accessed by that device itself.
4. Outlook content can’t be accessed by Gmail but Gmail content can be accessed by outlook.
5. Performance wise both are better. It all depends on business need. If you need to access your mails from any place and any device then Gmail is better. If you want to access your mail from just single device then outlook is better.

I think you are confused. Microsoft Office Outlook is an email client while Hotmail and Gmail or Google Mail are mail services or email services. Any of these mail services can use an email client like Outlook to send and receive email messages. Since Gmail and Hotmail are two different mail services, you cannot send or receive messages from the latter using the first because they are not designed to do that.

That’s the job of an email client like Microsoft Office Outlook. One example of an email client that you can use for free unlike Microsoft Office Outlook is Mozilla Thunderbird. This is from the same developer of Mozilla Firefox. Opera also had their own email client called Opera Mail. I tried it once and the interface is very simple.

Unfortunately, Opera Mail has been discontinued. SeaMonkey is one example of web browser that includes a built-in email client. If you want to try one of these email clients, you can download from this list:
