For those that haven't already seen it, this build can be downloaded from So far, there's only a build for Windows, but I'm sure builds for other OSes will follow pretty soon. It appears to be based upon the Moz1.3b builds numbered 20030313, and has the identifier 'Minotaur/0.1a' on the end of its user agent string. It uses the old Netscape 4.x style Classic theme, and so far I haven't been able to get it to change to the Modern theme. Mind you, this is only a very early build, so I'm sure that theme switching will be fully implemented in the near future. Anyway, if you wanna try it, the URL's there, so go grab a copy!"

I thought there was a project to seperate Mozilla's various apps into seperate processes. This would accomplish very much the same thing and is in my opinion a better way to go. I don't feel the need for a seperate mail prgram and I don't understand why some feel the need for one given that Mozilla will soon use seperate processes.

Can someone explain the need for Minator and what it might accomplish that mail/news running as a seperate process in the Mozilla application could not accomplish?
