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.

I understand the aim of keeping the UI light, but if everything is an extension (and most people will want some extensions if core stuff like offline mode qualifies as one) doesn't that just shove all the clutter into the extensions pref panel? <p> Instead of having a collapsible tree of prefs as Mozilla has now, doesn't the extensions area run the risk of becoming a large unordered list of miscellaneous crap?
