Meet Mozilla Thunderbird 2
There was a big event on Thursday for Mozilla, which launched Thunderbird 2, the latest version of its free, open-source e-mail client featuring message tagging and customization.
Thunderbird 2 will make easier the organization of e-mail via message tags, advanced folder viewing, and speedier inbox and message searching.
"In Thunderbird 2, we incorporated the proven benefits of tagging to e-mail," Scott MacGregor, Mozilla's lead engineer for Thunderbird, said in a statement. "Tagging initially gained popularity on blogs, photo and link-sharing sites as an intuitive way to organize online information."
The features of Thunderbird 2 are designed to allow users to create their own message template, or use any hundreds of free add-ons to change the appearance and functionality of their e-mail client.
Thunderbird 2 also includes a backward-forward function to browse messages, and allows users to save e-mail searches in folders for reuse.
