Open source webmail clients for browser-based email

Gmail has enjoyed phenomenal success, and regardless of which study you choose to look at for exact numbers, there’s no doubt that Gmail is towards the top of the pack when it comes to market share. For certain circles, Gmail has become synonymous with email, or at least with webmail. Many appreciate its clean interface and the simple ability to access their inbox from anywhere.

But Gmail is far from the only name in the game when it comes to web-based email clients. In fact, there are a number of open source alternatives available for those who want more freedom, and occasionally, a completely different approach to managing their email without relying on a desktop client.

Let’s take a look at just a few of the free, open source webmail clients out there available for you to choose from.

Flowblade 1.2

Flowblade 1.2 is the ninth release of Flowblade.

  • Flowblade has now been ported to GTK3.

  • The process was not as straight forward as one might think but eventually everything worked out. There always seemed to be just one more little change in API that required all instances to be fixed by hand. Luckily there was a conversion script available that did most of the grunt work to get things going.

  • We did get something in return. A small but percipteble responsiveness improvement was gained probably because GTK3 provides a Cairo widget for creating custom widgets that is now used instead of the project specific Cairo widget that was used before. GTK3 also seems to render widgets a bit crispier.
  • I really hope that major API breaking version jumps for widget toolkits are avoided as much as possible. Projects with large interface and small man power can really suffer here.

  • There were some other major developments during the cycle too:

  • All rendering was moved out of process as the in-process rendering was found to not work correctly in same cases.

  • Dark theme support was improved. It is now possible to use a dark theme just by setting a preference if the GTK3 theme used has a dark variant available.
  • Small screen support has been upgraded. The application now works better on 768px height screens.

Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition No Longer Available for Sale in Europe

“Unfortunately Europe has already run through their forecasted inventory (they sold better than we expected). The US still has inventory on hand. Because there will be a next gen coming out we won’t be getting any more of this model. Thanks for the support!” wrote Dell’s Barton George on his website. He’s the same guy who announced that the XPS 13 was brought back to the shop a while back.

Mozilla: data stolen from hacked bug database was used to attack Firefox

Mozilla added that the attacker accessed 185 non-public Firefox bugs, of which 53 involved “severe vulnerabilities.” Ten of the vulnerabilities were unpatched at the time, while the remainder had been fixed in the most recent version of Firefox at the time.

Attack code exploiting Android’s critical Stagefright bugs is now public

The critical flaws, which reside in an Android media library known as libstagefright, give attackers a variety of ways to surreptitiously execute malicious code on unsuspecting owners’ devices. The vulnerabilities were privately reported in April and May and were publicly disclosed only in late July. Google has spent the past four months preparing fixes and distributing them to partners, but those efforts have faced a series of setbacks and limitations.
