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.

Mozilla is just going from one extreme to another.

The monolithic Mozilla included everything but the kitchen sink.... now we are faced with a stripped-down Thunderbird and have to use a highly unreliable installer with no "uninstall" option. What an improvement!

Why don't we have a fully-featured browser and a fully-featured mail client?

The 6 people who want to spend their days hunting down extensions have the time to manually strip down their brower too.
