The Best Mozilla Thunderbird Alternatives for Windows in 2018

Mitchell Baker, Mozilla’s Executive Chairwoman, announced Monday that Mozilla would prefer to stop supporting Thunderbird, their popular email client, as it represents a continuing “tax” on other development projects within Mozilla. She stated that it is constantly in competition for resources that the leadership feels should be “laser-focused on activities like Firefox that can have an industry-wide impact”.

Paused videos, newspaper articles, blog posts, funny pictures of cats and/or overused memes…if it was on the web, it was pinned in my browser. I wouldn’t even close them; the same pins could sit there untouched for months. Then one day I would get fed up and start going through them, rediscovering those hidden gems I had forgotten existed. Or, if I was really frustrated, just right-click and closing without ever knowing what I had deemed important enough. I usually reached that point when it was taking minutes at a time to load up my web browser. A Modern Epidemic Of Bad Habits If I said that I would regularly have two or three dozen tabs open at any given time, most of the people reading this would probably be shocked. But there is a sliver of readers who are scoffing at my amateur status. The point is, the majority of us are guilty of being inefficient and disorganized with our browsing.
