G-Mailto associates "mailto" email links on the web with GMail.


From the site:

The Program

One night I was going through 250KB javascript file that is GMail, figuring out how it works. After a bit I discovered that I could link directly to the Compose page pretty easily (among other things). Mix that with some obscure registry knowledge and BLAMO! G-Mailto is born and Mailto links are no longer just an annoyance.

G-Mailto is a utility that automatically associates "mailto" email links on the web with GMail. So clicking a link like this: Email me! will open up the GMail compose window instead of opening up something like Outlook Express that doesn't work with GMail (yet).

If you are not logged in, it will bring you to the GMail login screen and redirect you to the compose window after you log in. If you use cookies then you dont even have to worry about that.
