Big news from mozilla, a new roadmap for the application suite has been released. I’m not going into too much analysis of it here, but as far as I am concerned it takes things in the right direction. Rather than bundling everything as one “monolithic application” the new suite is based around separating the components out and thus cleaning up the user interface and easing integration with other applications. Ever since I figured out how to stop Mozilla (the browser) opening mozilla mail instead of my default mail client (Outlook Express) I’ve wished for a simpler UI and better integration with other applications.
So in summary the new roadmap is a good step, I fully support the mozilla teams efforts. This has been coming for a while with the release of the phoenix browsers and the recent information released regarding minotaur.
P.S. To get the default mail client activated use the following in a user.js files (the same folder as your prefs.js file)
