Thanks to Lee C for sharing this. Lee is not a fan of google, and this is one of the reasons.

Read down through this article. Decide for yourself if it's worth it to YOU to continue using the product. If the answer is no, do some further investigating. You can't base your decision to drop the service on one article. But, you CAN base your decision to investigate based on one article.

But this isn't Google abusing anyone's privacy. This is just a malicious script that is supposed to "enhance" Google (probably via GreaseMonkey or the like). So if you're naive enough to download a script without verifying its security or authenticity, then you probably shouldn't be using GreaseMonkey. This is one Gmail user that ain't swayed.
