With the latest update of Firefox’s extension FireGPG to 0.8, Maximilien Cuony announced that he dropped GMail support, and that he discontinued this project altogether.

That’s sad news for all eMail privacy advocates. Fortunately, all is not lost: most regular MUAs (eMail clients) support OpenPGP compliant applications like GnuPG, either directly or through an extension. GMail account holders can use those PGP-enabled clients via Google Mail’s IMAP interface.
