I made a trivial change in my copy of the Interlink repo, pointing to @roytam1's page vs. Tobin's (roytam1 is free to incorporate this change in his builds if he wants)

it seems that you didn't push your change(s) to github.

Well, oops.... :blushing: I think what happened is, I made the change, then started looking for a JavaScript function that I could use to tie it to a pref, didn't find one right off the bat, then forgot that I hadn't committed the change!

Sorry about that. It's in there now....

How does this compare to Thunderbird?  Is it like earlier 1x and 2x versions?  Or even like SeaMonkey Mail?

How is it different than Matt Tobin's Interlink application?

The use is identical to Thunderbird.

I think it is better to use MailNews because it is updated compared to the version of Thunderbird that can be installed with XP:

With browsers (particularly Serpent), @roytam1 occasionally reverts some changes to retain useful features removed in "official" builds, so even users of newer Windows versions may prefer his builds to the official ones. That's not really the case with MailNews; there's little reason to deviate from an official build of an email client, other than branding.

Or that there are only x86 builds of MailNews.  Are there any x64 builds?

Should be possible - the official version is available in 64-bit form - but I haven't seen @roytam1 post a 64-bit build of MailNews or BNavigator, although he posts 64-bit versions of NM 27/28 and Serpent 52/55.

Mailnews will only work on SSE2 cpus I take it?

According to the official Web site for Interlink that is correct. AIUI the big issue is the JavaScript JIT compiler, which emits SSE2 code.

JavaScript may not seem relevant to an email client, but a lot of internal JavaScript is used under the covers.

Perhaps an older version of Thunderbird could be forked to produce an SSE-only build....

yeah it is possible to build 64bit editions, but since there is no demand (I don't use them, and no user requesting 64bit builds) so I don't build 64bit BOC-related builds by default.

As typical my installer will install the latest of roy's builds, and I would like to add that I'm about half done with another version of the installer with some features people have requested. Stay tuned!

Plus, I tired running the x64 build of InterLink on Windows 8.  It threw an error (I'll have to go fetch it).  Apparently, the x64 version requires the AVX instruction set.  I'm sure that would cause problems on older x64 versions of XP on older hardware, no?

This is probably a stupid question, but which browser should I be using for my day to day? Is BOC a replacement for New Moon?
