    Pros: 

    it works! Fair price

    Cons: 

    None so far

    It even works when the mailto link has a subject or message etc. It only copies the email address and discards the rest! I think 2$ is a fair price to get rid of the incredibly annoying Apple Mail popup :) PS: Awesome intro video

Instead of dealing with my constant existential dread, I decide to make yet another browser extension🕺. I even managed to pull in @iamarnob, he is the one who designed the landing page, made that snazzy thumbnail animation and demo video. Whenever I click on a Contact Us link and Apple Mail 💩 pops up in my face without a warning, the rage I feel is truly out of this world 😡. One day I decided I never want to feel that way again, so I made a browser extension that would copy the email address and block Apple Mail from popping up. Seriously, get this extension and lower your blood pressure. (not proven with medical research yet)

I work on a Mac and it opens stupid Apple mail on mailto link, which I hate. I would love if it opens Gmail with the address copied to Compose window

@ricky_goswami this is built into Chrome. You can enable "handlers" in Chrome's settings and then go to Gmail, which will ask to handle mailto links.

@ricky_goswami Do this: 1. Open Chrome and navigate to "Settings." 2. Click "Content settings" under "Privacy and security" (in Advanced). 3. Select "Handlers" and switch on the Ask protocol. 4. Open Gmail in Chrome and click the Protocol Handler icon. 5. Allow Gmail to open all email links And volià 🎉

I also loved your promo video! Despite being mostly a vanity project, a lot of dumb startups tend to make funny videos and forget to show off the product. Your <1min video did a great job of showing the problem, the scope of your product, and the solution that your product addresses. All while giving a little humor. good job dudes!

Brilliant! Has anyone ever actually wanted to open their email client when they click on a "Contact us" button?
