Thunderbird takes 43rd of 100

Thunderbird has taken the honour of taking 43rd place in PC World’s: The 100 Best Products of 2008 Award. What I find a bit odd (besides being sandwiched between the Rock Band controllers and the Dell XPS 420) is there is a link to a PC World review in the list. The PC World review titled T-Bird E-Mail App a Winner is from January 27, 2005 and is a review of Thunderbird 1.0 (current released version is 2.0 and prior was 1.5). Oh well, as David Ascher put it, “I can’t wait to see where we land in 2009…“

Firefox 3 Takes 21st & Flock 6th

Firefox 3 RC2 Coming

At today’s Firefox 3 Status meeting, it was announced there would be a second release candidate (RC) in early June. Here’s the scoop from Mozilla Links: RC2 will fix about a couple of dozen bugs including some top crashers, some affecting performance and localization related. Most of the bugs already have patches waiting for review or landing and the revised code is expected for tomorrow, with initial builds available on Thursday. QA will start the same day and last for about a week. Look for Firefox 3 RC 2 to be released on/around Friday, June 6th.
