New review: Mozilla Thunderbird for Mac

Mozilla Thunderbird just updated for Mac and it's better than ever. Check out the latest version of this feature-packed e-mail client and read our review.

New Review

The Mozilla folks always think of Mac users. I've already extolled the virtues of Mozilla Firefox in the past and I still think it's a great browser even when up against Apple's Safari. Mozilla's other Mac browser, Camino, is like a slimmed-down model built from the ground up using native Mac OS X technologies and toolkits. But I'm not here to talk about browsers. The Mozilla folks have another great product for Mac that just got an update.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a full-featured e-mail client that puts almost all others in the category to shame. While I wouldn't say that you should toss out Apple's Mail client just yet, I would definitely suggest downloading Thunderbird to give it your once-over. Some added features of this nimble yet powerful e-mailer might make you consider doing things the Mozilla way. Check out our latest reviews of the Mozilla Thunderbird Mac version and the Mozilla Thunderbird Windows version.
