We all noticed a lot of noise on the CSRF attack recently unearthed in Gmail which is really dangerous & can cause harm to many other websites also.  
So the question arises, What to do to be SAFE?
Here are few alternatives, select one as per your convenience.
1) POP your mails: I’ll again emphasis on POPing the mail over SSL, this way you are not logging on the webmail so you are safe from such attacks, moreover you are on a complete encrypted channel, so more safer
2) Use multiple browsers: Try using different browser for different activities. Say using IE for logging onto webmails & such sites, Firefox for non-login websites, Opera for another such set. No kidding, this is a good way to keep yourself secure
