Editors' review

The simple calendar application provides basic features for planning your time. You can use it to schedule various event types and control task accomplishment. We liked its clear and handy interface. You can easily switch between day, week, and month views. Mozilla Sunbird makes rescheduling events as easy as drag-and-dropping them. The program may serve to workgroups using the WebDAV technology. As Mozilla Sunbird is still work in progress, you won't find many important features. The program lacks means to highlight various even types. You can't password-protect your schedule. In spite of these flaws, the freeware satisfies basic planning needs.

    "Very Intuitive and Easy to Use"

    January 13, 2012   |   By PlacidDragon

    Version: Mozilla Sunbird 0.9

    Pros

    Syncs with other calendar formats. Offers several features such as a mini calendar alongside the enlarged calendar. It is easy to share this calendar.

    Cons

    I wish I had more control over the appearance. There appear to be only a handful of extensions and add ons. I would prefer the color coding for each event to comprise the entire background of that event rather than just the tip of the event. I would also like to be able to alter the color scheme of the calendar itself to something other than white/grey or a blood red theme.

    Summary

    Overall, this is one of the easiest calendars to work with because it is so intuitive and user friendly. I just wish it was more vibrant looking, or at least allowed us to have more control over its color scheming.

    "Super FREE Program"

    December 15, 2011   |   By snodinn

    Version: Mozilla Sunbird 0.9

    Pros

    I have just downloaded and started to use this program. Although I found the portable Sunbird. This was convenient as I was going to transform Mozilla Sunbird download from CNET into a portable. It is the program I was looking for to keep all of my time and tasks for work, and events at home. I will be advising many of my students and friends to use this program.

    Cons

    So far I cannot find a con. I did notice something about the alarms not working properly in one of the reviews so will not be activating those until I learn more about them.

    Summary

    This was just what I was looking for to keep track of the time I work, and notes for what I accomplish during work hours.

    Updated on Dec 22, 2011

    Still very impressed with this program!! It is doing what I need it to do.

    Cons

    I needed some pacience to configure it correctly and get it set, but with some help online I got it working well.

    "Very full featured calendar"

    January 05, 2010   |   By sotoa

    Version: Mozilla Sunbird 0.9

    Pros

    I use it like I did with Outlook.
    Full featured calendar with dates, holidays, reminders, etc.

    Cons

    Can't minimize to tray. If you close it, you will not get reminded. But there's an addon to make it go to the tray (I can't remember how, but I found one that works great)

    Summary

    Now that Win 7 does not come with a calendar program (Vista did have a good one), I find that Sunbird is perfect (once I enable it to stay at the tray even if I close it).
    I like having the calendar separate from the email. I now use Thunderbird 3 since Win 7 doesn't have a built in email client and I couldn't get the Lightning addon calendar to work with Thunderbird, but Sunbird is a fantastic program.

    "Excellent free calendar."

    November 11, 2009   |   By kzoosteve

    Version: Mozilla Sunbird 0.9

    Pros

    My wife and I use Sunbird to sync our appointments. She highlights all of her appointments in pink and of coarse I highlight mine in blue. Makes checking and scheduling appointments a breeze.

    Cons

    Has a known issue with printing. Why print it anyway? Have had a RARE glitch or two on my wifes PC (Vista) where an appointment didn't show up and was then re-added. It then showed up on my PC (Windows 7) as a double entry. Vista or her PC?

    Summary

    I recommend it if you're not already using Outlook or if you don't want to use Outlook for whatever reason.

    "alot like outlook calandar but not as good."

    August 26, 2009   |   By arlanci

    Version: Mozilla Sunbird 0.9

    Pros

    Nice calendar for the most part

    Cons

    I couldnt put an end date to recurring things like classes, etc. It moves slowly going from one month to the next month, a few seconds pause, which is irritating in a hurry.

    Summary

    Pretty good.

    "Excellent software!"

    October 02, 2008   |   By Max2448

    Version: Mozilla Sunbird 0.9

    Pros

    It's easy to use/understand, it uses little system resources, does what it says it will, and also has a few other cool features.

    Cons

    It doesn't have a "Minimize to system tray" function, like Microsoft Outlook. Without this function, you have to keep it running for your notes/reminders to work, and if you exit the program, they don't work.

    Summary

    Because it doesn't have a "Minimize to system tray" function, like Microsoft Outlook, is really sad (for me), cause any notes/reminders I make do NOT show up unless I keep it running. If Mozilla can fix this, I'll definitely be using this more.
