When I am on a website, and there is a link to another website, I am annoyed that Google pops up, requesting password and email. I DON'T want to go through Google everytime I need to link to
another site. Can any forum member help, please?
The "[email protected]" link you've mentioned is what's called a mailto: link. It's not a website address but is instead used to e-mail a company or individual. When a user clicks a mailto: link, their default e-mail application is opened. In your case it sounds like Google Mail is set as the default and it's asking you to login.
I think rdave is on the right track with his Gmail Notifier query.
