Developed one of the coolest extensions I have seen in awhile: Get your facebook wall in Buzz style inside your gmail. Its a chrome extension, which I will soon port into firefox through greasemonkey, you can find it over here: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/hbjjmjlajhdcbnkdajndkmkjlkfphipc

(In retrospect, the first sentence is really narcissistic... but I really love this extension for some reason)

It's interesting, does it display the top news or most recent?

Most recent, and it got featured on techcrunch as well (http://techcrunch.com/2010/02/16/annoyed-with-buzz-in-your-gmail-add-facebook-too/), only problem is that it functions only in approx. 70% of the cases, as not everybody's gmail is the same (different labs and I suspect there is even more variation).

That's nice!
I like it very much, I have some problems but it looks promising.

Nice! Have you looked into the Gmail Greasemonkey API for this? It should be a relatively stable API for modifying the Gmail interface with user scripts.
