Add a Face to any Mailto:

June 27, 2008 | Posted by Demitrious Kelly

Recently I came across a Greasemonkey userscript which adds a gravatar image to every mailto: link on a web page. Clever use of interesting technologies by docwhat.  Very cool!

    Nice idea!!

    Maybe an “Add-On” like “McAfee SiteAdvisor” will be nice which adds the Gravatar image on the client side? So thousands of web site owners need not updating their pages and users have to choice to display mailto-Gravatar images 😉

  5. Great idea, but I have to admit that I haven’t seen too many mailto’s in the past few years…

    Were I can test it? And how to install?

  7. Thanks for information 😉

  8. Oops this is just black & white to me… hope in near future there is something simpler so that ppl like me also understand and can use.

    How does anyone contact the gravatar team??!

    We have added gravatar support to our site, but might remove it because we have some issues and no way to address them.

    I’m using it for quite a while now. It’s a great extension though (Greasemonkey AND the script). 🙂

  16. I realized Gravatar is being used on a number of the sites I use, namely StackOverflow, GitHub and WordPress, now that I am writting a blog on it. I think Gravatar is a great idea and went as far as blogging about it. You can see my post here
