Mozilla's answer to Microsoft Outlook has a new look. The open source foundation responsible for Firefox, the Web browser that has given Internet Explorer a run for its money, made Thunderbird 2.0 available yesterday.
Ars Technica reports that the new version of the open source e-mail client boasts several improved features that should make it a viable alternative to Outlook. Among them: An improved search function allows users to save searches and better "message history navigation." A wizard makes account creation a snap, the writer says, and better phishing protection is just one of the security improvements.
Thunderbird 2.0 is available from Mozilla for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows, and it comes in 35 different languages.
