Mozilla Thunderbird to receive some UI love in Oneiric Ocelot
Mozilla Firefox 4 won "the contest" (there were some discussion at UDS-O focused on topics like Chromium to replace Mozilla Firefox as the default browser, Thunderbird as default) but its little open-source brother, Thunderbird, must prove its superiority in order to take Evolution's place.
Properly integration with the desktop is one of the main requirements (demanded at UDS-O), and, it seems that this task is evolving quite awesome, "especially with the possibility of Thunderbird becoming the default in the next Ubuntu release" .
So, how much love will Thunderbird receive?
Take a look at this:
- Thunderbird's address book official prototype published
- FileSwap Filelink add-on adds FileSwap file attachment support to Thunderbird (free service, anonymous account supported)
- Thunderbird 17 ALPHA 2 receives new "cog"-like Australis button
- Use Dropbox for big-sized attachments in Thunderbird via the add-on Dropbox for Filelink
- Launchpad up-to-date official blueprint: Add overlay scrollbar support for Thunderbird and Firefox (probably Ubuntu 12.10)
