    Hey Mozilla Team,

    This seems like a really innovative idea. Kudos to you guys for coming up with it.

    You made Firefox 3.x the worst release of your browser ever. You dropped the ball. And now you are making a google reader?

    You are rapidly losing credibility – I no longer have a Firefox shorcut on my linux or mac machines, it is Safari, epiphany-webkit and chrome / chromium all the way.

    Do some more of those fancy 10 minute $8,000 videos to talk about your weak ideas and prototypes that go nowhere.

    Way to waste all those millions from google – ah well.

    While it seems like a good idea to have a web portal side of it. The whole reason I use Thunderbird is to have access to my communications while offline. A standalone version of raindrop that can save the data from the raindrop portal locally seems idea.

    Thanks Mozilla

    Sounds very interesting and inventive. I would like to follow the development

    This sounds AMAZING. It clearly addresses a void in social communications that needs to be filed. And pretty much Is what people though Google Wave WAS supposed to be. Don’t get me wrong. I want to incorporate Wave into my business and personal collaboration. But rain drop looks like a tool I would use EVERY DAY.

    Really excited about this project… crank it out! This is what Google wave should have been.
