Mozilla Does Not Believe in Thunderbird Anymore

By | December 6, 2015

Mozilla Does Not Believe in Thunderbird AnymoreMight spin it off.

Mitchell Baker, the exec chairwoman of Mozilla Organization, has recently published an open memo on the mozilla.governance forum, sharing her thoughts about Firefox and Thunderbird, its free email client.

As it turns out, Baker does not believe in Thunderbird anymore and now considers it akin to “paying a tax”, even though the active software development has pretty much stopped back in 2012.

So what’s going to happen with the Mozilla’s email client? According to Mitchell, “Thunderbird should would thrive best by separating itself from reliance on Mozilla development systems and in some cases, Mozilla technology,” which pretty much indicates what fans have had feared for years: Thunderbird is dead, unless new home is found.

If you would like to read the full memo, head over to Google’s forums.
