Mozilla Thunderbird Gets Extension Support

Wednesday June 18th, 2003

New Mozilla Thunderbird builds with support for installing extensions have been released. Read Scott MacGregor's Thunderbird Builds forum posting for more details. A page of information about creating extensions has been published and Scott has already released the first official add-on, Offline Support. More extensions are available from Extension Room, which also hosts XUL-based add-ons for other Mozilla products.

On the other hand, a lot of people discovering the new search box in Firebird are really excited. Especially people switching over from IE. The bad thing is, of course, that now you have 2 fields instead of one before. The good one is that you can have a set of dozens of different search engine and have just to select which one to use. While in Mozilla 1.4, you see only your default search engine. And if you want more, you will have to open the sidebar, which makes an additional field + an additional sidebar - overall worse than the firebird solution if you ask me.
