Thunderbird 5 UI sucks
So last night Thunderbird notified me about an update. I was excited about it and did the update. Once the update was applied I was expecting to see some new features or improvements in the user interface of the application.
Instead of anything I was expecting, I was greeted by the shockingly horrendous new UI of the Mozilla Thunderbird!
It made me ask myself in disbelief "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT?!!" It is just fucking unbelievable that anyone would fail not to see what a shitty UI it makes.
I had to uninstall and reinstall Thunderbird to convince myself that the UI is by design, and is not an installation bug with the application. That's how much unbelievable it is. Someone must have gone completely crazy at Mozilla.
Advice to Mozilla: Keep the UI simple, revert it back to the previous one. Most important of all: please get a professional to design, review, and approve all user interfaces developed at Mozilla.
If Thunderbird continues this trend of not caring about the UI, it will start losing users. I am already wondering what the best alternative to Thunderbird might be on Windows.
