Open MailTo links with GMail in Chrome

Update:

Old post below:

I don’t know why Google’s chrome browser does not know how to open Gmail for email, but it’s not just you. Google notifier will work for IE and Foxfire has the option to choose Gmail as the default email.
If you want to use chrome and make it open Gmail for mailto: links, you have to set it up yourself.

This is the extension that integrates Gmail into the Chrome browser.

This is the “Default Maker” that makes Mailto Links point to chrome.

With the two of them, you should get MailTo Links to open Gmail.
