    Hi,

    I want to try to switch to Safari from Firefox but I know if Safari can use gmail to as a sender for web page links?

    In FF, I can set it up so that when I want to send a friend the current url of the webpage that I am viewing, it will open a new tab with the gmail compose window and the subject will have the webpage's title, the body will have the url of the webpage.

    Does anyone know of an extension or something that allows Safari to do that ?

    Thanks,

    http://apple.com/downloads might have something. I think I saw a gmail extension, and I'm too lazy to look it up.

    actually, its extensions.apple.com There are several for email an gmail specifically, but I cant see the whole list on an ipad.

    Near the bottom, there is an icon that looks like a puzzle, click there, and then choose what you are looking for from the side. about halfway down, there is a tab that says Email. Click that and then look on that list.
