users will rejoice today as the highly anticipated update to the open-source email client Thunderbird is released.
The update, imaginatively titled Thunderbird 2
boasts a plethora of new and improved features. Amongst the list is the ability to organise mail with Tagging, Advanced Folder Views, 'find as you type' and Message History Navigation.
Thunderbird 2 will also include support for Windows Vista and an new, streamlined user interface.
The original Mozilla Thunderbird software was one of the most popular open-source projects and was part of The Mozilla Foundation's on-going attempts to redefine the way PC users access email.
To date the original version of Thunderbird has been downloaded over 45 million times, making a not inconsiderable dent in Microsoft's market share for Outlook.
You can download Thunderbird 2 from GetThunderbird.com
