I am an avid user of Thunderbird, and have been amazed at its power, especially considering its only a .3 release. I believe that the lack of comments do not revolve around the lack of interest but because it is a project that is not as far along as Firebird. Also, as jedbro pointed out, a browser is more fun to play with! :-)
