Full Article Attached Mozilla Minotaur Project Formally Launched

Monday March 24th, 2003

In a newsgroup posting, Scott MacGregor has formally announced the launch of Minotaur, a project to create a stand-alone mail client based on the Mozilla suite's Mail & Newsgroups component. While Minotaur will have largely the same feature set as Mail & Newsgroups, it will sport a simpler and more customizable user interface, much like the Phoenix redesign of the Mozilla browser. The revitalised Minotaur project combines the work of both the original Minotaur effort — which aimed to build a stand-alone version of Mail & Newsgroups — with that of Thunderbird, an enterprise intended to create a mail client to accompany Phoenix.

The reason I prefer Phoenix over Mozilla is because it is more usable. The usability in Mozilla has never been good (and not of very high priority) and although I use Moz Mail I feel that there are a lot of things that needs to be more usable and stream lined.
