Mozilla's new mail initiative
Mozilla announced a new initiative to develop Internet communications software based on the Thunderbird email client, code and brand.
I think this is good news because the new company will look into Internet mail and communications software only in a bid to come with a product that is as successful as the Firefox browser. It will look at further development of the Thunderbird email client and having a dedicated company focussed on that alone will also quicken the development I think.
I use Thunderbird for one of my e-mail accounts and I think its quite good in terms of e-mail but where it lacks is the calender aspect because the extension that I use, Lightning is not yet quite polished enough.
I also hope that this new initiative will result in an e-mail client as close to
Microsoft Outlook or Evolution as possible or even better. I use the Evolution e-mail client in Ubuntu and I
have no complains about it. I am still to try the Windows version of Evolution but when I get time I
will have a look at it.
