Gmail Compose Link – Alternate of Mailto

Just found an alternate of obseleted html "mailto:" option. Use following URL to redirect users to Gmail Compose window.
No plugin is required in it, if the user is not logged in … it will ask to, then redirect to compose window.

<a target="_blank" href="">Click here to email</a>

original idea is here
