For Thunderbird, 'As easy to use as Outlook Express (and in many ways better).'" The content of the article comes from the team at PCWorld.com.

Huh? the standalone browser has always had pausing downloads. I tested 0.1 - 0.8. It inherited the ability from Mozilla. But in testing this I found an interesting tidbit. Phoenix 0.1 has the download manager from the suite. 0.2 on does not have it. Why did they do away with it. I know the new one is different but still why remove it only to add it back much later.

I found in Mozilla the download manager itself doesn't allow pausing (1.4) but if you click on properties of a download you can pause it there which is the same download dialog the standalone browser uses up to 0.7. 0.8 has the pause option in the download manager itself now.
