mailto: links not working on Google Chrome Android

This drove me nuts for a good few hours. I had a normal mailto link which I was using as a simple email this page/post button/link in a WordPress template:

<a href="mailto:?Subject=<?php the_title();?>&amp;body=<?php echo urlencode(get_permalink());?>" title="Share via email" rel="nofollow">Email</a>

All fair enough, right? Nope not on Google Chrome for Android, it just opened the mailto link in a new tab/window and did dick all else - open the email client options you prick Android!!!

After a few hours of Goggling (I appreciate the irony) I added target="_top" - now it works:

<a href="mailto:?Subject=<?php the_title();?>&amp;body=<?php echo urlencode(get_permalink());?>" title="Share via email" rel="nofollow" target="_top">Email</a>

Thank you very little Android, I love you really!
