Cooking up some Tabs-on-top for Thunderbird.

Sure would be nice to have a three vertical column layout (folders, messages, current message). This particular layout allows showing a lot of messages, but not given the current message list layout.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that most people use the folder view switching arrows once, at startup, to switch to the view they want to use.  After that, any clicks are accidental and frustrating.  I’m thinking of removing that line entirely, and using the space to display more folders.  (People would still be able to use the menu to switch views, just like all the other display options for that tab.)

Thoughts?  How often do all of you use the folder view switching arrows?

Since we renamed our Aurora channel to “Earlybird”, we needed to come up with a new logo.  This one seems pretty cute.  :)
