Blake Ross has posted some details about Thunderbird to the Phoenix General forum. Thunderbird (formerly Minotaur) is a lightweight stand-alone mail client that will accompany Phoenix.

"I thought you were against bloated apps and UIs."

I'm against BLUI not a feature complete browser suite. A feature complete browser suite using BLUI is a bug ridden and blubber infested piece of char broiled lizard lard. Phoenix isn't a solution, it is compromise. A dead ended one at that.

"Phoenix and Thunderbird are exactly the opposite of what you so detest (Mozilla) so what's your problem? XUL?"

It is not called XUL.... it is called BLUI, and yes, BLUI is the problem.

"If so, post some constructive alternatives, some real ideas on how to build cross-platform UIs or, if you can't do that, just fuck off."

Here's a novel concept. Don't make a cross-platform UI. Try making a non-crossplatform UI. Now it's your turn to blow off.

Forever Yours,
