Read & send encrypted Gmail

Through a free Firefox extension called "Gmail S/MIME", Richard Jones has created a method to send and read encrypted Gmail.

The approach is not perfect just yet, but very promising: "S/MIME support is integrated directly into Google's Gmail web interface. Reading and sending of encrypted mail is supported. Verification of signatures is not currently supported. There are some interoperability and performance issues which I plan to iron out in later releases."

Oh, and if the name "Richard Jones" sounds familiar, it's the same developer who created the Gmail based Linux filesystem, GmailFS!
