Weird GMail login path...

Today I noticed something really strange. I’m logging into my GMail account, and the login page redirects the browser to some youtube.com subdomain before redirecting back to my inbox.

Looks like now I can “like” YouTube videos without having to log in! Hurray!

Although this is a strange way to make it work, I appreciate the end-result even if it means one more redirect. I just hope Google won’t do the same for all their services, because having a dozen redirects before logging into GMail would really be bad.
