Stefano recently pointed me to a Thunderbird plugin called GmailUI that adds a few cutesy keystroke features to Thunderbird. It’s quite useful, especially the archive feature. The only thing that I don’t like is that I now have to press ctrl-j to mark a message as junkmail and move it to my junk folder. But it’s a net improvement regardless of this.
This is the first time that I’ve purposely modified a desktop application behave more like a website.
