I’ve written two previous posts about replacing Mozilla software with alternative e-mail and web browsing software, out of protest for two things:
First was the (I know, this is old news, you don’t hafta tell me it was “a long time ago”) company’s firing of a it’s CEO for daring to express a politically incorrect opinion, and second is the extreme bloat and resource hunger of the later versions of Mozilla’s flagship browser, Firefox.
Wellllll, dontchya know, my old favorite, Seamonkey, is an independent project, no longer developed by the politically-correct bloatmasters. This is actually old news too, but I’m a slow learner I guess. Thunderbird is also an independent and separate project now as well, although for the time being both projects have agreements with Mozilla for hosting and some legal stuff.
So I’m a Seamonkey fanboy again!
I guess by the time I finally decided to act on my convictions, Seamonkey and Thunderbird had already been independent projects. Duh.
But like I said, I’m a slow learner.
