'PC Pro' Columnist Recommends Mozilla Firebird

In particular, the writer praises the fact that Firebird is standalone, and does not provide an unwanted mail client. He also appreciates the ability to add extra functionality through extensions. The article also goes on to mention the Mozilla Amazon Browser, and is enthusiastic about the possibilities offered by XUL based applications."

After a few minutes of browsing the PC Pro site, you'll be asked to register before being allowed to continue (registration is free). This requirement can be avoided by loading each page of the article in a separate tab or window (Mozilla is only discussed on the first three pages), or by disabling cookies. The article can also be found in PC Pro issue 108.

Thanks for your reply jilles,

Maybe you will laugh at this, but a Mozilla Suite like toolbar linking to the different Birds would be a major selling point for me.

Firebird is nice, but the one feature I really like from IE and which is optional in Mozilla (which is "autocomplete match as you type" is not yet integrated. I am also happy to hear about efforts regarding Chatzilla and Calendar.

And of course, mozilla based apps would rock.

I promise you and myself that I will continue to follow the bird till 1.0 at least and to keep an open mind. Maybe everything will be just as good as you say.
