Mozilla Releases Thunderbird 2.0 Beta
Analysis: The next version of Thunderbird boasts many improvements, but it's still very much a beta. (DesktopLinux.com)The Thunderbird e-mail client doesnt get half the attention that its big brother, the Firefox browser, gets, but the Mozilla Foundation has finally gotten around to lavishing some love on it, and the first beta of version 2 is now out. If you think theres nothing more that can be added to an e-mail client--except for the fabled seek-out-and-destroy-spam option--prepare to be pleasantly surprised. The new Thunderbird comes with numerous new features.
Bloggers, who have discovered the joy of using tags to keep track of their stories, will be pleased to find that theyll now be able to create and use their own tags for organizing their e-mail. Messages can be assigned any number of tags. Tags can be combined with saved searches and mail views to make it easier to organize e-mail.
