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."

I also used to remember thunderbird as slow, but it was fast since thunderbird 2; possibly due to improvements in xul / firefox stack?

I've been using the "Shredder" nightly builds for a while now, sadly I've been finding it getting more and more sluggish since they introduced automatic indexing of messages (though having nearly 40k messages in my inbox might have something to do with that).

I haven't tried the 3.0 release yet, though.
