Thunderbrowse – freebie Firefox add-on turns your email client into a web browser


Thunderbrowse is a free Firefox add-on that turns your humble email client into a mega gargantuan web browser. OK, just a web browser. Download and install it, and you’ll instantly gain the ability to browse the web directly from a CTRL-W prompt. It comes with a shed load of configuration options, and will even turn your message pane into a tabbed browser window when you click on a Web link in a message. Neat.

 ThunderBrowse is an AMO recommended addon that provides browsing features for Thunderbird. With ThunderBrowse you can browse almost any website on the internet. Did a friend send you a link? Simply click the link and ThunderBrowse will load the page instantly right within Thunderbird, without the need to open another application. If you don’t want to surf on a page in ThunderBrowse you can easily right click and choose “Visit in Browser” and have the page launch in the system default browser or the browser of your choice.

  • MS Outlook has been able to display live web pages [inside Outlook] since at least the 2000 version for Windows, and I'm pretty sure it was in the 98 version for mac. Click on Favorites, in the older versions. Outlook 2007 has the Web toolbar disabled by default, but you can reactivate it-click on View, Toolbars, Web.
