Mozilla certainly hoped that Thunderbird could be as its sibling, Firefox. That’s why they prepared new strategy. This time, client email service from Thunderbird is managed by group called “Thunderbird Group”. But it seemed like under the group, the thunderbird couldn’t have significant financial increasing.
That’s why Mozilla then prepared a reserve plan. Thunderbird will be a part of Mozilla lab. There, Thunderbird will change its name into Mozilla messaging and wouldn’t focus on profit, but center research.
“Now we will lead this group’s innovation where Mozilla Lab will focused on online communication and social interaction in web,” Mitchell Baker, Chairman Mozilla Foundation explained.
He continued that in some next years, web world has change. The hugest change is web usage for communication, also social interaction in the internet. That’s why Mozilla Messaging will enter to web messaging.
