Mozilla Thunderbird is a redesign of the Mozilla mail component. Our goal is to produce a cross platform stand alone mail application using the XUL user interface language. Our intended customer is someone who uses Mozilla Firebird (or another stand alone browser) as their primary browser and wants a mail client based on mozilla that "plays nice" with the browser. In addition, by focusing solely on stand alone mail, we believe we can make some dents in the overall footprint and performance of the mail client by removing components and chrome we don't need. On top of that, the UI becomes much cleaner as a stand alone application as opposed to being part of the mozilla suite.
In addition to the feature set found in Mozilla Mail, Thunderbird has several new features and improvements to make your mail and new experience better. Highlights include:
* The ability to customize your toolbars the way you want them. Choose View / Toolbars / Customize inside any window.
* UI extensions can be added to Mozilla Thunderbird to customize your experiene with specific features and enchancements that you need. Support for extensions. Extensions allow you to add features particular to your needs such as offline mail support. A full list of available extensions can be found here.
* A new look and feel. Thunderbird also supports a large number of downloadable themes which alter the appearance of the client.
* An addressing sidebar for mail compose which makes it easy and convient to add address book contacts to emails.
* Online help includes a FAQ, tips and tricks and other useful information.
* Simplified preferences UI and menus.
* Footprint and performance improvements.

For some reason, Apple has changed the way the iSync menu bar item works in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.
From Apple Support:
"To sync with any phone that's been configured in iSync, the iSync application must be open to sync to it via Sync Now from the Sync Status menu. In other words, if you set up a mobile phone in iSync, you will not be able to sync information with it from the Sync Status menu if iSync is not open."
This is different to 10.3 and earlier and in my opinion is a step-back in user-friendliness.
Sync Now can be added to your dock or your favourite menu bar application launcher to bring back the old 1-click sync functionality without having to manually open iSync and click again.
When run Sync Now will open iSync, start the syncing process then quit iSync and itself when finished.

The Java Embedding Plugin is a utility that allows other web browsers than Apple's Safari to use the most recent versions of Java (1.4.X) on Mac OS X. When used together with an updated version of Mozilla's MRJ Plugin Carbon (included in this distribution), the Java Embedding Plugin's functionality is currently available to recent versions of Mozilla, Firefox and Camino. But in principle any web browser could use one of the Java Embedding Plugin's two APIs to add support for Java 1.4.X.
