In related news, all of mozilla.org's Thunderbird/Minotaur-related information has been moved to the new Thunderbird project site.


#6 Explain Memory Footprint

Ok, I can buy into the argument that Thunderbird will shrink in file size, but what about memory footprint? I understand it too will shrink, but since Phoenix and Thunderbird will run as separate processes, each will have its own memory footprint and will no longer share resources as Mozilla's integrated solution can do. Running Phoenix and Thunderbird separate is like running 1.5 to 1.75 Mozillas.

Is this the best route to take?
