Thunderbird 2 on Vista

Thunderbird 2 was released couple of weeks ago and I decided to upgrade my Thunderbird 1.5 on Vista Ultimate today.

Very seamless experience, I downloaded, installed and now running without any glitch! All address book and filters automatically imported.

Read the entire list of features but my favorite ones are:

  • Message History Navigation - Like browser, it now maintains a history of messages (both forward and backward) viewed.
  • Improved Search - Find as you type pane makes search more effective.
  • Automated Update - Automatically checks to see if an update is available, download and install.
  • Stay Informed - Provide more informative and relevant message alerts containing sender, subject and message text for newly arrived messages.

If you are using Firefox then you are already familiar with most of the above features but it's nice to see a consistent set of features in products coming out of Mozilla Foundation. And probably these features are available as add-ons for Thunderbird 1.5 but I never looked around. Feel free to drop a comment on this blog if you know of an interesting add-on.
