The thing that rubs me the wrong way about this is not that there
would be a permissioning UI, it would be the permission decision I
would have to convey through said UI. How do I know that I want to let
some site have the same permissions I give Gmail?
Do you really, really need this? Gmail is already always running on my desktop.
