Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has announced it's ceasing development on Thunderbird; one more version will be released, and it'll be security updates from then on. "Most Thunderbird users seem happy with the basic email feature set. In parallel, we have seen the rising popularity of Web-based forms of communications representing email alternatives to a desktop solution. Given this, focusing on stability for Thunderbird and driving innovation through other offerings seems a natural choice." Makes sense - I mean, there's only so much you can do with something that needs to send and receive mail, and I can't imagine Thunderbird having a lot of users. Strange, almost Microsoftian obtuse announcement, by the way.

My point was that the "connect several accounts" works equally well on at least Gmail as it does in desktop clients (ISP provided ones included). I just checked and both Hotmail and Yahoo provide the same functionality.

I'm just focusing on this particular argument. Letting a third party read your emails or having access to your account on a foreign device is another thing, and there I couldn't agree with you more. ;)
