#2047 Google open-sources Chrome extension to make PGP encryption easier in Gmail

Initially created by Google engineers, E2EMail has now been open-sourced on GitHub, so other security experts can contribute and improve its effectiveness.

E2EMail is not yet available via the Chrome Web Store, and if you want to install it, you'll have to go through a series of complicated steps to build the extension and then load it in Chrome. Instructions are included in the GitHub repo.
