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.

Entirely agree. It already annoys me that when installing the latest version of Mozilla I have to reinstall the latest versions of things like the Spellchecker which should be shipped with Moz (I know that this is a bug, but it has been forever!)
It always seems strange to me that developer/beta-tester types who are far more likely to have a fast connection and lots of processing power and memory are the most likely to want their apps to be small and sparsely featured. I think it's just an excuse to play - the sparser the feature set of an app, the more reason to play at extending it to put those features back in ;-)
