You are already using a browser based app, built on the Mozilla
platform (i.e. Firefox).</p>
<p>But I understand your concerns (I don't like Electron apps
anymore than the next guy). I'll let Magnus share what this future
might look like. But when running for Council he said:</p>
<blockquote type="cite">My vision for Thunderbird is that we'd
eventually (a few years) get to the state that it could be run
as a super fat, privileged web app with good system integration
- this way we can best leverage the Mozilla platform we're bound
to. In parallel we should get much better with utilizing the
data contained in mails, to help users be more productive and
make them look good doing so. Developing the overall product
concept is also important.</blockquote>
So that is one potential path forward, but there has been no
agreement on this - I was just laying out one option that has been
raised that was relevant to the discussion in that other thread.
Magnus also uses the word <i>"could" </i>which I think should be
considered in this discussion. Having it possible to run
Thunderbird in a browser doesn't mean that is the only way that it
could be run.<br>

and the Firefox team and see where we can work together.

Can you elaborate on this?
I for one do not want a browser based app.
