A while back we featured Mozilla’s Thunderbird email client and a nice gentleman named William Lefkovics responded that Thunderbird is no replacement for outlook, but Spicebird is. And with that in mind, here is an update on SpiceBird.
Spicebird is a collaboration client that provides integrated access to email, contacts, calendaring and instant messaging in a single application. It provides easy access to various web services while retaining all the advantages of a desktop application. The application is based on projects like Thunderbird, Lightning and Telepathy and adds more functionality and integration among its components.
SpiceBird has been in Beta release since its inception, but has gained a massive following, and with good reason. Here are some of the features:
- Chat with friends on services like Yahoo, Google Talk, AIM, ICQ and Jabber
- Add iGoogle Gadgets to Spicebird
- Disable the applications that are unused
- Access Google calendar
- Experimental support for managing blogs
- Available in more than 10 languages
- Basic set of add-ons
- Import data from Thunderbird, Outlook and Outlook Express
- RSS News Feed Reader
- Google maps
