If you use Gmail as your main email account, you are sure to have come across the problem that existed whenever you clicked on any email links in Google’s Chrome browser. Once clicked the link would then fire up your local machines default email application even if you didn’t use it.
Now Google has made an update to their Chrome browser to help Gmail account holders change the way the browser uses email links. So rather than cutting & pasting the email address back in to Gmail. You will now be able to click a link and have Gmail automatically open it read to write your email.
The new update has been rolled out today by Google and uses the magic of HTML 5 to make the links magically open Gmail when in Google’s Chrome browser.
The first time you click on an email link after the update has been received a popup message will appear asking you to “Allow Gmail (mail.google.com) to open all email links?” (shown in the image above). Simply click “Use Gmail” and you are ready to start using it.
