However, I have been extremely excited to see the cr-gpg plugin for Chromium coming along very rapidly, and finally re-enabling email encryption for Gmail! The plugin is still in an Alpha state, but I've reported a few bugs here, and worked with the developers and helped test others.
I'm pleased to say that I'm now using cr-gpg on a daily basis for encryption/decryption with:
- Ubuntu 11.10 amd64
- Chromium-browser 15.0.874.106~r107270-0ubuntu0.11.10.1
- gnupg 1.4.11-3ubuntu1
- cr-gpg 0.7.8
