    GMail Drive is a Shell Namespace Extension that creates a virtual filesystem around your Google GMail account, allowing you to use GMail as a storage medium.

    GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google GMail account and enables you to save and retrieve files stored on your GMail account directly from inside Windows Explorer.

    GMail Drive literally adds a new drive to your computer under the My Computer folder, where you can create new folders, copy and drag'n'drop files to.

    Requirements: Internet Explorer 5 or better

    GmailFS uses explorer.exe which makes use of IE for internet connections. Because this is an internal function of windows there is no waw to "support" anything other than IE. the gmailFS drive is placed in your "my computer" section alongside your other drives, you never actually open a web browser to use it.
