Mozilla's Raindrop seeks to make e-mail personal again

,----[ Quote ]
| Though the Thunderbird team at Mozilla is 
| developing Raindrop, the group explains that 
| Raindrop is not another e-mail client, but 
| rather, a communication application. I don't 
| completely agree with this distinction. 
| Today's e-mail clients are communication 
| applications, aren't they? They may not be 
| as well suited to handle current Web 
| communications as Raindrop can, but they're 
| still communications applications. In any 
| case, I'm pretty excited about Raindrop and 
| suggest you watch this demo video.

| He cites Mozillaâs Firefox, which he calls 
| the âbest browser in the worldâ as proof of

| environments, âgave us the confidence that 
| this was possible,â he says. And, while he 
| doesnât believe that all software 
| development will be open-source, he is 
| confident, he says that âwhile Apple and RIM 
| will remain significant players, the really 
| exciting innovation will move to the most 
| open platform.â
