Preview: Mozilla Lightning
As a Windows user there is a distinct lack of good applications for tracking your calendar, email, and tasks all in one location. Some applications do email but not calendar, where as others do calendars without email. As a business user there is a connection between the two.
Why is the only game in town Microsoft Outlook?
Mozilla, the team that brought us Firefox and Thunderbird, both of which I love, is trying to do just that with their Lightning Add-on for Thunderbird.
Once the extension is installed it puts a new left hand box with a calendar, agenda, todo and calendar underneath my email folders. You can resize the whole column wider, but to go smaller collapses the whole thing down. Pretty lame.
