Is there any way to remotely sign out of Gmail? I logged onto Gmail on a public computer but I don't remember if I logged out. Is there any way to force that computer to logout without going back to it?

Every web app in the world should implement this feature. – Al E. Jul 3 '10 at 18:16
It is a really easy feature to implement. I won't go into detail, but if you tie every cookie you create to an entry in a database, you can just delete all of the cookie records that are connected with that user and suddenly they are logged out everywhere. Really neat feature, I add it to all my apps. – Tyler Carter Jul 4 '10 at 5:00
