    Set Gmail as the default e-mail client in Google Chrome

    This tip should also work for other webmail providers if you know the correct URL to use.

    1. Launch a new browser window and open up Gmail.
    2. Open the Javascript console by pressing Ctrl-Shift-J on Windows or Command+Option+J on Mac OS X and then paste in the following:

      Code:
      navigator.registerProtocolHandler("mailto","https://mail.google.com/mail/?extsrc=mailto&url=%s","Gmail");
    3. Accept the confirmation at the top of the browser window and try out a mailto link. If you should ever need to remove this setting, you can do so via chrome://settings/handlers.
