Mozilla Sunbird Review

Monday September 6th, 2004

Steve Mallett writes in: "Mozilla Sunbird is the latest stand-alone application from the Mozilla foundation that follows in the footsteps of now revered browser Firefox and email client Thunderbird. OSDir reviews their first public release, version 0.2."

UPDATE: Sunbird 0.2 is not actually available yet, they are currently working towards it. The review is of a nightly build.

#6 What is needed is email integration

To make the calendar a stand alone app is rather absurd: there are tons of calendar apps already and many do more than sunbird. What would be really useful is the integration with TB, e.g. allowing emails to have deadlines and follow-up actions. Emails often are about work, todos, deadlines etc and therefore there are many ways how a tight integration of the two would increase productivity. Another thing is that calendar should finally make holidays properties of days, instead of events, so that events and time-spans can be based on the properties - e.g. "every first monday that is not a holyday" or "every 10 workdays".
