Mailto: for Gmail™ Review

This extension will make mailto: links open in a Gmail compose window. Nothing more, nothing less.

* Supports Google Apps accounts
* Works on javascript-inserted links
* Includes option of working on bcc: fields
* Option to open in new window rather than default tab

It supports to, cc, subject, and body (and optionally bcc) fields, and is made to be compatible with RFC2368, the mailto: scheme standard.

It doesn't modify the mailto:address itself, so you can still see the link in the status bar when you hover over it, which allows you to easily read the target at a glance.


Please note, some report the need to restart the browser for it to work. I have never had to, and can't figure out why it would be necessary, but if it's not working after installing, try a restart.
