GmailUI: Making Desktop Applications Behave like Websites

· Philip Jacob

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.
