I finally made the switch from Maxthon (for tabbed browsing) to Firefox. I needed a couple of extensions, like the mouse gestures extensions, but I think I got all the functionality I liked in Maxthon embedded in FireFox now.
After installing FireFox, I decided to take a look at ThunderBird, since my current email application, Eudora, is going to be open source too, but I’m not sure how it’s going to hold in de open source community.
ThunderBird imported my address-book flawlessly, but it seems to have a lot of trouble with my mailboxes. I am not sure how to solve that issue yet. Maybe somebody out there can help me out on this one.
Also, there seems to be no possibility to import the filters that are used in Eudora, but I guess this is a good time to clean up the mess I got at this moment.
For now, I will keep Eudora and Thunderbird running side by side. I checked the option to ‘Leave mail on server’ in Thunderbird, so if I download mail in Thunderbird, I can still download the mail in Eudora. Until I have my issues sorted out, this will be the way to work…
