San Francisco: Mozilla is working towards making some major changes to its Thunderbird desktop email client that includes a facelift to the User Interface (UI) and better support for Gmail.
Mozilla Thunderbird is a free and open-source cross-platform email client, news client, RSS and chat client developed by the Mozilla Foundation. The project strategy was modelled after that of the Mozilla Firefox web browser. It is installed by default on Ubuntu desktop systems.
According to the company, the impending updates in 2019 would be possible due to Thunderbird’s growing staff, which currently include eight employees with as many as six more on the way.
“At the beginning of this year we are going to be adding as many as six new members to our team. Most of these people, with the exception of this author, are engineers who will be focused on making Thunderbird more stable, faster, and easier to use,” Ryan Sipes, Community Manager, Mozilla Thunderbird wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday.
