When Google & Firefox mesh...

Gmail is magnificently subtle, from the fact that it's invitation only to the elegance of the interface (threaded discussions, rss, address autocomplete etc.). Even its revenue model is subtle - those discrete text ads, rather than irritating, big, blinking flash banners. Then there's the storage space.

I'd seen a 3rd party tool for using all that Gmail space as online disk space a while back. Trouble was, it needed to be installed on the client and there are separate vendors for the mac and PC versions. Then some bright spark made Gmail Space - an add-on for Firefox that allows you to use spare Gmail space as file space. Nice!

Update: so you have to install the Firefox extension on each machine, right? Not with Firefox Portable.
