New Thunderbird now available for download

Rafael Ebron

Mozilla, a global, nonprofit organization dedicated to making the Web better, today released new versions of Mozilla Thunderbird, its free and open source email application, available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The new Thunderbird, available in 52 different languages, is based on the  Mozilla Gecko 10 engine and includes improvements to searching your emails and a new ability to search the Web directly within Thunderbird. Users can simply type whatever comes to mind in Thunderbird’s search box and choose from several different search engines such as Google, Bing, Twitter, and Wikipedia. Search results will conveniently be displayed in a new tab in Thunderbird. Users can also select terms in their email and then right click to initiate a web search on those terms.

Thunderbird 3.1.18 security update is also now available from http://mozilla.org/thunderbird/all-older.html. Thunderbird 3.1.18 will no longer be supported from April 24, 2012.

We recommend that all Thunderbird users upgrade to these latest releases.  To get the latest versions of Thunderbird for Windows, Mac or Linux  download Thunderbird from http://mozilla.org/thunderbird or click on “check for update” under the “About Thunderbird” menu.
