Other Mozilla apps as standalone Programs like Mozmail, mozcomposer.


This would be great. Many users prefer Mozilla but do not like the email client. Others like Composer but prefer Phoenix as a browser.

Mozilla is to feature bloated

There will be stand-alone versions of Mozilla's mail application.
Minotaur will just be a stand-alone version of the mail program, with identical features.
Thunderbird will be based on Minotaur and on the Phoenix toolkit (so, it will probably have toolbar customization, among other things).

Btw, "Good Idea?", that is one of the worst poll descripting I've seen to date...

A stand-alone Mozilla-based mail app seems to be wanted by a lot of people.
In addition to Minotaur and Thunderbird, there seems to be AOL Communicator too.

It has been renamed to GRE (Gecko Runtime Environment). Read this page http://www.mozilla.org/projects/embedding/MRE.html for more infos.
The XRE (XUL Runtime Environment) Project will probably be very useful too.

Yeah I know, it's very exciting and fun to make polls whenever possible. It doesn't matter that they're useless, because it's so cool, right?

So those are the magic words for removing useless polls? ;)

If they are, I'm halfway through the decision to utter these words in numerous polls... ;)
