Jed Schmidt is likely to be a very popular man today. He is the first person to create a genuine, legal, no installation (therefore no void of warranty) way of using copy and paste between Safari and Mail.
The service is called Pastebud and according to Gizmodo:
Pastebud uses two bookmarks in Safari, one prepares and loads the page you are viewing, and from there you can copy any text you want and create a new mail message with that text in it.
You can watch a video of the service here:
Let’s face it, it’s still not exactly what we’re all looking for but it’s a step in the right direction and is likely to save time for millions of users out there. Pastebud is expected to launch very shortly.
