    Make Gmail Default Email Client in Google Chrome

    Hi,

    My preference for Chrome over Firefox and other browsers leaves me to a small but fine feature I've had in Firefox... have Gmail as the default email client in google chrome.

    This link showed how to do exactly this in firefox.
    How do I do it in google Chrome?

    This should do the trick for all browsers. Install the deb file from this link:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnome-gmail/files/

    Enjoy!

    Thanks a ton, that was beginning to bug me.

    Just a note to others that this only adds gmail to the list of preferred email clients. Go to System > Preferences > Preferred Applications to change from evolution to gmail.

    Yes yes thank you very much. Worked like a charm and is exactly what I wanted. I found other ways to make Gmail the default client but those opened it through Firefox, now I can use it through Google Chrome.

    Just found this app in a lifehacker post made today (the gnome-gmail one).

    It's pretty damn cool so I thought this thread was worth a mega-bump.

    Cheers, worked for me too.
    I think I am going to be going the route of eliminating the use of thunderbird and/or evolution.
    Much less hassle I think.
