It's been a while since I last looked at Mozilla Firebird and since there have been more than a few people raving about the latest release recently, I figured it was time to check it out again.
It's way cool.
It's slick, it's fast and above all, it's usable. And from their FAQ:
We need all the exposure we can get. Make it your mission to convert 5 friends, family members or coworkers. If you're a student, get it distributed at your college. Submit a story to Slashdot and other news sites about the release. Make some noise on your blog. Mass distribution via the Internet is possible--look at Kazaa. Spread the word!
So if you decide to use it because of this post, leave a comment and help boost my karma! I need five of ya and I might not come back as a frog in my next life or something like that 🙁 Those of you using Awasu as your default browser are, of course, banned 🙂
And if you really like it, you can tweak Awasu to use it. It's not as complicated as it looks 🙂
The Mozilla email client, Thunderbird, also looks really good but I don't think it's quite ready for business use yet. Lack of a proper (i.e. integrated and official) backup facility is a definite show-stopper, unfortunately.
