so I finally downloaded mozilla firebird. Very very nice indeed. Highly recommended. Time to give IE the boot.

It's great isn't it? A vast improvement over Internet Suxplorer! I must warn you, however, mine has unexpectedly crashed occasionally..

yeah, Internet Ex-plorer pales in comparsion.

With all of the added benefits of security, customization, tabs, open-source, extensions, etc. I think the rare crash is a pretty sweet trade-off :smile:

What do you think of Thunderbird? Outlook looks like the next uninstall victim to me.

I've had no Firebird crashes and have been using it since 0.5, Mozilla used to crap out twice a week, Exploder twice a day..

Don't like Thunderbird much yet, I stick with webmail.

is it a resource hog like mozilla?

I like mozilla's features, just not it's sluggishness.

it's a bit slow to start, but it's pretty responsive in windows for me.

i'm using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030817 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1+..


I also use the web installer to download the newest nightlies and install them for me.


[edit: oh yeah, firebird rocks!]

What do the nightly builds entail? And are they worth installing as well?

Thanks :smile:

Nightly Builds: Created most weekdays from the previous day's work, these will probably work, but may not. Use them to verify that a bug you're tracking has been fixed.

these builds are simply created every night from the latest checked in cvs code. I never have problems with nightlies, as I like to stay on the bleeding edge as far as firebird is concerned.

from the firebird faq.

1.3 What's the difference between Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla?

Mozilla (Application Suite) is a complete suite of web related applications, such as a browser, a mail/news client, a chat client and much more. Mozilla Firebird is just a browser, which makes it a better choice if you already have a mail client for example. Also, since Mozilla Firebird is smaller than the whole Mozilla suite, it's faster and easier to use.


yeah, firebird takes a few seconds to come up initially, but once it gets going, seems to be quicker/smoother than IE.
