Mozilla Thunderbird 3.0 was released this week. It seems ages since version 2.0 made its debut. The new 3.0 has been a long time coming. The new version brings enhanced searching and a tabbed interface. I really like the tabbed interface. It definitely makes the program feel more modern.
I primarily use Gmail online for my email, but I do use Thunderbird to locally archive my messages from my Gmail account. I’ve been pleased during my limited trial of the new 3.0. It feels very fresh and new. It’s my favorite email client across all platforms.
