What's the big deal about GMail File Shell Extension?
While it seems to be a neat idea that somebody did it, I can't understand why everybody gets excited about it.
It's seems like it would be against the terms of service, inappropriate usage even if it isn't against the terms of service, and generally an inefficient way to add 1 GB to your computer (that's probably got 200+ anyway <grin>)
And if you're using if for a "download site" when your away from your computer, wouldn't just emailing yourself the files, and using the native gmail client be more appropriate than setting up a tool to download files?
Just my .02...
