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."

nice!

...but page 2? no body cares about e-mail clients anymore? even cross-platform ones?


Yeah, this is a major release of the best email client for Linux.

Even the gmail users will need to use a real client at work to access that pesky exchange server. Thunderbird beats the competition hands down.

No. The motto of the best email client still reads:


"All mail clients suck. This one just sucks less." -me, circa 1995

Did you try thunderbird 3 already? I'd argue mutt is not better than that.

Totally subjective. How can it compete with KMail, for example?

Subjectively speaking, kmail was much slower and more crash-prone for me than thunderbird 2. Obviously I have no benchmarks to prove it.

As for thunderbird 3, it's no comparison at all (though I haven't tried the latest kmail builds...).

To each their own. I personally can't stand Thunderbird, after having used KMail/Kontact for so long. Especially now that KMail/Kontact is available for Windows. Why anyone would use something (TB) so slow and blah is beyond me. ;)
