Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has released Thunderbird 3. You can read the release notes, or download the darn thing. "If you like Firefox's tabbed browsing, you're going to love tabbed email. Thunderbird 3's tabbed email lets you load emails in separate tabs so you can quickly jump between them. Search results open in a new tab too. New tools like our timeline and filtering tools will help you pinpoint the email you're looking for, whether it’s the one from yesterday, last month, or several years ago."

Sure, Mozilla probably provides a tar file or something to extract into your home directory, which is how I used Firefox 3 and 3.5 up until Ubuntu *finally* decided to support it officially... but it feels "cleaner" and more proper to use the official package management system. It'd rather not use tarred, generically pre-built binaries if I can help it.


I'm using the tarball as we speak. What's the problem with it anyway? That's basically how windows users deal with their software all the time, and I don't see them complaining.
