MailTo: Opens Up Email Links In Gmail, Yahoo & Hotmail [Chrome]

Almost every website has an email link but when you try to open it, it mostly opens in Microsoft Outlook or another default desktop based email client you use. MailTo is a Chrome extension that opens email links in your preferred web mail service such as Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, Zoho Mail or Fastmail.

Once you choose your service, every email link will open in your specified webmail service with the address field already filled out. There are other solutions out there that do the same thing but this one is one of the simplest ones. It will get even better with time as the developer adds more webmail services.
