'The Guardian' Recommends Mozilla Firebird/Thunderbird, Criticises Mozilla Development Decisions

Thursday July 10th, 2003

Ian Deeley and A Wood both wrote in to tell us that today's edition of The Guardian, the UK broadsheet newspaper, features a column by Jack Schofield that recommends Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird. The article states that "Mozilla's Firebird browser and Thunderbird standalone mail software could make Microsoft's offerings look very shabby indeed." The bulk of the rest of the feature critically examines Netscape's and's browser development decisions (it is particularly damning of the team's cross-platform aspirations) and discusses Microsoft's plans to abandon development of the standalone version of Internet Explorer. Readers of the print edition of The Guardian can find the column on page 22 of the Life/Online supplement.

MSIE is bundled with the operating system, apparently at no charge - in the very near future it will be totally and utterly integrated in the operating system (A a consequens of the DOJ thingie). The most popular tools got special MSIE for Win modules, many of them only make MSIE for Win web-code. No contest.....

I would like to thank the entire Mozilla team and the commercial supporters, like the bug blue, that has brought us this wonderfull crossplatform web-browser. Without you 30-70mio users of non-Redmond based systems would have been left in the dark......
