Fantastic work as usual! The addons manager is great and the addressbar much improved. My only minor quibble is that you can't use shortcuts like Ctrl+W (or even Alt+F4) while the addressbar is displaying, but who cares? :)

Where does one get add-ons for Otter Browser?  I am looking for something that would allow me to send the current tab's URL link via GMail.  Thank you.

For the moment addons means UserJS, meaning for instance sites like https://openuserjs.org/ and https://greasyfork.org/.

However, as to your question itself, you don't need any addons for that. There are two main methods available.

  • Bookmarklet
  • Custom button

In both cases, what you need is a bookmarklet that performs the action you want, namely something like this (via):
Code: [Select]
javascript:(function()%7Bm='https://mail.google.com/mail/?view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&to=&su='+encodeURIComponent(document.title)+'&body='+encodeURIComponent(document.location);w=window.open(m,'addwindow','status=no,toolbar=no,width=575,height=545,resizable=yes');setTimeout(function()%7Bw.focus();%7D,%20250);%7D)();

For a bookmarklet, you add a bookmark, put that in the address, and add a convenient keyword (like "mail") or whatever.

For a custom button, you right click on e.g. the back/forward buttons → Navigation Bar → Configure. Then you add one with the "Open URL" action.

Thank you, Frenzie, for your feedback.   Unfortunately, that script does not seem to do the trick with either a custom button method or bookmarklet method.  Your information is much apppreciated, however.  You taught me something here for the future at least.  :)

It should work provided popup windows aren't blocked on the site in question. Unfortunately that does somewhat limit its utility. A better way might be to use an "Arbitrary List of Actions" to get around this limitation, but I don't think that's implemented yet.

@Frenzie That bookmarklet simply opens a window to GMail's inbox.  It doesn't open a "compose mail" window at all.

@treego The problem was that it said http instead of https. That's not an issue in other browsers for whatever reason.

@Frenzie Thank you once again for snooping through this.  The problem I have now is that the bookmarklet opens a blank page first and then opens a blank GMail compose window.  The compose window puts about:blank in the message body section of the compose window and nothing in the subject line of the compose window.  I appreciate your time and willingness to post about this here, Frenzie.  :)

Edit/Addition:
I just figured out that I have to select "Reuse current tab" in the Ctrl-F12 Preferences/General in order for this bookmarklet to work.  I have always had that unchecked/unselected previously.  Thank you so much, again, Frenzie.
