Mozilla Thunderbird gets Firefox-style tabs

Filed under

A developer has added tabbed browsing of e-mail messages to Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client, mimicking one of the most popular features of the Firefox and Opera Web browsers.

It is unlikely the feature will be found in Mozilla's imminent release of Thunderbird 1.5 -- currently in testing -- but software developer Myk Melez has put test versions of Thunderbird online with the tabbed browsing feature included.

However, there are doubts over the suitability of these downloads for production use as they are based on bleeding-edge "unofficial" code.

"If you haven't tried message tabs before, using them is simple," Melez wrote on his blog this week. "Just right-click a message header and select 'Open Message in New Tab' from the context menu."

Full Story.
