 Review: Thunderbird 1.0

There has been a lot of news lately about Firefox, the open-source browser from the Mozilla foundation. The Mozilla foundation also makes a e-mail client called Thunderbird which reached version 1.0 recently. I used Thunderbird for a few weeks to get an idea of what it's all about, and whether it matches it's better known sibling, Firefox in terms of features and stability.

Thunderbird is a free download from www.mozilla.org. It is available for Linux, Windows and OS X, and the interface is remarkably consistent across all three. I tested the Linux and Windows versions. It's a relatively small download, 5.8 MB for Windows, and 9.8 MB for Linux. The installer is simple and easy to use, both on Linux and Windows. In Windows its a standard installer, in Linux it's a tar.gz file which you need to extract, and then click on the thunderbird executable. Read More @ Linuxtimes.net
