I just recently featured Top Greasemonkey Scripts for Gmail 2.0 last week and it was well received. It just goes to show how many people are looking for useful enhancements to Gmail.
One of the most popular script is the Google Account Multi-Login script. The script lets you switch between multiple Gmail accounts without having to log out and sign back in.
The script author has updated this script yesterday with a very important security fix. Here is his words from the update log:
UPDATE (01/13/08): Patched a security hole which could potentially allow a malicious site to steal your passwords. Anyone who has installed this script should reinstall immediately.
If that’s not reason enough, the new script version has an option to prompt for password each time instead of storing it. I have been a little queasy with the script storing passwords for me but I gave in for the ease it offered me in switching between multiple Gmail accounts.
Now, I can’t be happier that I have the option to not store the passwords. I strongly recommend anyone using this script to update immediately.
Pongal(?) is an Indian festival celebrating the prosperity bestowed upon us by the sun and rain. It is roughly equivalent to Thanksgiving here in the US. Today is that auspicious day and I would like to wish Happy Pongal to everyone celebrating it!
