In the first month after its release Thunderbird 1.0 has been download 2 million times. Thunderbird is the alternative e-mail client from Mozilla.
That's 2 million people who will be able to push the spam aside with Thunderbird's innovative junk-mail filters and get back to using e-mail again rather than being abused by it. That's two million people who will have access to the new and exciting world of RSS. Simply put, that's 2 million people who will enjoy using e-mail again :-)
Thunderbird, like Firefox, is built upon the well-tested and extremely stable Mozilla platform. All of the people that worked hard building the Mozilla technologies that underly this great new e-mail application deserve a huge thanks and congratulations, too.
