Fun with Gmail and AutoHotkey

The following Gmail/Firefox AutoHotkey hack was a byproduct of my in-flight boredom today, but I thought it might be useful to others. In essence, it remaps the right Alt key to load Mozilla Firefox (if it isn’t already running), and then open a new Gmail Compose tab within which to write a new email message. Software prerequisites are Gmail Manager, AutoHotkey, and the Greasemonkey script Gmail macros.
