    The Mozilla Foundation has just launched version 1.0 of its highly anticipated Thunderbird e-mail client. This marks the second major product launch for the open source foundation in under a month.

    In addition to functioning as an e-mail client, Thunderbird provides users with an RSS news reader, as well as the ability to retrieve messages from internet newsgroups.

    New features in this release include:

    * Saved Search Folders
    * Message Grouping
    * Global Inbox
    * Comprehensive Data Migration
    * RSS Integration
    * Improved Privacy Controls
    * Improved Quick Search

    It brings live feeeds from websites right to your browser(or, in this case, email program).

    It's like news feeds.

    Urgent

    Hi,
    I have just tried Firefox and it was a load of rubbish.
    It wouldnt install flash automatically I had to download it manually and install it myself.
    It wouldnt show some web pages properly.
    It wont view files or folders on my system.

    Ive heard so much about these mozilla products and they are all amateur attempts.

    I will stick with Enigma Browser which is probably the most powerful and secure browser on the net and leave mozilla to those of you who enjoy problem solving ?

    I wont be trying any of their other products.

    Yep.

    But to comment anyway on those points before:
    You had to install Flash seperately on previous versions of IE years back
    A lot of the pages that FF won't display properly were coded specifically for IE instead of for all browsers (a sign of under-par coding).
    It's Windows Explorer that views files & folders - IE & WE are basically the one program although you don't notice it due to the fact that it switches flawlessly.

    It doesn't install flash automatically for a reason.
    People using IE don't know what they're installing...things popup and they automatically click yes then that's how they get spyware.
    Firefox doesn't do this it just blocks out all that crap. You download "extensions" and other addons for Firefox to add your own functionality.
