Minimalistic redirection of your New Tab page to Google Tasks.

It's nice to have it in Mail, Calendar, etc. except I forget to look at it. This way I tend to see and hopefully do the things more often.

Update, version 4: attempted fix the "losing url when you open a new tab and paste a new url quickly"-problem. Let me know if you still run into problems (wish this silly forum sent notifications :/)

Version 5: Should work with the new app store format now.

Version 6: Options page with optional suffix on url, and possibly Google Apps for Your Domain. I'm not sure it works as tasks doesn't really seem to support multi-login.
