Use Emacs to compose emails for Gmail web interface

Hi.  I use Gmail's web interface.  In the long run I may change to an Emacs
mail client, but I am out of time right now and Gmail has been working very

The one irritation is that every time I compose an email, I type `c' in Gmail
(to open compose), then C-a (to select all), C-c , change focus to Emacs, C-M-y
(which I have bound to clipboard-yank), M-x delete-trailing-whitespace, edit
the email, C-x h, C-M-w (which I have bound to clipboard-kill-ring-save), change
focus to gmail, C-v.

Is there a quicker way?

It would be better if Gmail worked with the Firefox extension `It's all text',
which it used to; but since Gmail moved to the "new compose experience" it
doesn't work anymore.

The sooner we fight global heating the lesser the cost
