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.

Of course not, don't be silly. I said that when using random computers using a desktop client is not more secure.
As for webmail passwords, considering that any serious provider is going to use SSL I dont see how you'd go about stealing that very easily. It's certainly not easier (or harder) than stealing your IMAP or POP3 password.
