Thunderbird 3 Beta 1, Download and Test the Latest Mozilla Mail Client
Article by George Norman
On 11 Dec 2008
The Mozilla Project has recently released the first Beta installment of the upcoming Thunderbird 3 mail client. If you would like to check out the core functionalities, the new features, or the platform changes that Thunderbird 3 will have, the software is available for download; just keep in mind that it is an early Beta build and it is mainly meant for testers (and passionate Thunderbird fans).

If putting software that is in its early development phase to the test is not exactly up your alley, but you would very much like to enjoy a mail client that came out of the Mozilla Project, then perhaps the recently updated Thunderbird 2.0.0.18 is for you. And if you would like the software to run a bit faster, then perhaps you might consider using Thunderfix 1.0.0.2 to get things rolling in the right direction.

Getting back to Thunderbird 3 Beta 1, here is a quick list of features you can expect to see in what is the newest Thunderbird release in over a year: Tab interface, Add-ons Manager, Vista Search and Mac OS X Address Book integration, improvements to IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol), message reader, Address Book, and mail import.

“In some ways, this is a typical beta — we’ve changed a lot of code since Thunderbird 2, and we need a lot of people to tell us if we’ve made any boo-boos when fixing bugs. It’s also a good beta in that we’ve moved the product forward, in part thanks to new capabilities in the underlying Mozilla platform, which gives us faster performance all around, an add-on manager which will be even more useful for Thunderbird users than for Firefox users,” explains David Ascher, Mozilla Messaging CEO.

If you would like to get Mozilla Thunderbird 3 Beta 1, a download location is available here.
