Mozilla Puts the Brakes on Thunderbird

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla may be best-known for its popular Firefox browser, but some 20 million users around the globe also know it for Thunderbird, its free and open source desktop email client.

Just a month after the release of the latest version 13 of Thunderbird, however, a leaked email on Friday apparently forced Mozilla to admit that it's putting the brakes on internal Thunderbird development.

“Once again we’ve been asking the question: is Thunderbird a likely source of innovation and of leadership in today’s Internet life?

Silly Mozilla

Lets waste our resources on a mobile project such as FirefoxOS which nobody wants or needs.

Mozilla

Mozilla has obviously lobotomized their entire leadership group (or what they call leaders - it's obvious they have ZERO training in that field).

Rapid release was just the start of their death spiral down to their entrance into the Netscape Hall of Fame.

It will be amazing if they have any market share at all in the next year or two.

I'd switch completely to chrome if it wasn't for the brain dead ADBLOCK PLUS version that runs really really great on Firefox, but sucks big time on Chrome (gee, wonder if Google, the Ad seller has anything to do with that).

For me, it's Firefox's Zoom Text Only with Ctrl-mousewheel feature (while not also zooming the images to take over the page)--this is a feature that Firefox has that Chrome lacks--I know, it seems silly, but it sure makes reading a web page easier for my older eyes.

Financial self interest prevails.

Libreboot Drama Continues, GNU Might Keep The Project

It's been one week since the Libreboot downstream of Coreboot announced it would leave the GNU and denounced the FSF over supposedly a transgendered individual having been fired by the this free software group. Both Richard Stallman and the FSF denounced these claims made by Libreboot maintainer Leah Rowe. Since then, no actual proof has been presented to back up these claims by the Libreboot maintainer but the drama around it has seemingly continued. Waking up this morning, I received an email as part of a long email chain from Leah Rowe about how the "GNU project refuses to let go of libreboot" and she wrote, "GNU project has told me that they will not allow libreboot to leave GNU. This is quite possibly the biggest insult imaginable, considering what has happened." Read more
