I want to open Gmail when I click a mailto link in Chrome in OS X.

Some web pages claim that I can set as default Email client in Chrome by chrome://settings/handlers. But in my environment, it shows nothing.

How can I open mailto link in Chrome in OS X?

A quick search shows you will need to download an application called "Google Notifier".

Full instructions can be found at Google Support.

One quick note: Would you not consider using your Gmail account in the Apple Mail client? Might be easier.
