Gmail tip

Speaking of Gmail, one tip that I ran across recently (apologies to whoever pointed it out, I am not recalling off the top of my head where I saw this) was that if you want secure access to Gmail, use this url: https://mail.gmail.com/mail. The Gmail link from Google puts you on a secure login, but then redirects to a non-secure Gmail page - going to the above link encrypts the login and the main page. This is nice if you are on a connection that you don't trust, like an open wi-fi hotspot.

As far as I know, this does not yet apply to the mobile interface for Gmail.
