Speaking of web-based mail, it seem that a little Firefox extension lets you "add ajax support to Yahoo! Mail"

Okay, I'll try to shut up about web-based mail for a day or so.

[Spotted by a co-worker on the Ajaxian Blog.]

Hey Jeremy,

Talking about web-based mail, what do you think about this one:


As of now it is just a concept, but I've been thinking on further development to offer it as an alternative web mail client for any pop3 account.

Btw, it is a XUL app ;-)

Imagine if the smart guy (a compliment) behind this AJAX app would enable a quick lookup in the Address Book from the TO:/FROM: addresses in mail, making it easy to cut/paste into the contact's notes field? Or a Y! Map from a Calendar entry's location field, Or again pulling up a contact name after parsing a Task or a Calendar entry (e.g. "[First Last]")?

For those of us who are driven by our calendar and task lists, this would be huge.

Thanks for the encouragement Peter, it takes only one compliment to fuel my motivation ;-)

Gonna start working on the DB then the controllers.
Let's see where it takes us.

at the author's home page:http://viamatic.com/firefox/
you can get the version 0.2 that has the neat "instant reply" feature, which allows you to reply without changing page context
