Meet the MicroThunderbird for Thunderbird Developer

Why was MicroThunderbird for Thunderbird created?

MicroBird started life first as a theme (MicroMozilla) for Mozilla somewhere around M10 (in 1999) (even before Firefox, Seamonkey, etc), which is now more than 10 years ago! The overall idea behind MicroBird is to minimize the user interface to provide more screenspace for the actual content, but with quality widgets using consistent and clear styling. One of the design rules is to always give consistent feedback on the use of widgets, by always providing a clear hover state and active state. Microbird uses retro/micro 8bit graphics.

What's next for MicroThunderbird for Thunderbird

Main development focuses on supporting extensions, fixing issues (if any!), and keeping up to date with Thunderbird development, including support for current nightlies.

Who is alfredkayser?

Active theme developer for Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, Seamonkey and Songbird. I have also contributed to Mozilla core development in areas such as image decoding, zip file decoding, network cache, css parsing, and others. Developing all these themes and keeping these up to date with current (and future) releases of Firefox, Thunderbird (incl. Lightning) and Songbird take up much of my sparetime (next to acting, particular in open air performances of Shakespeare).
