Official Mozilla Firebird Installer Now Available (for Windows)
Only a short while ago we discussed, here at Blogzilla, unofficial Mozilla Firebird/Thunderbird installers. Just today, MozillaZine revealed that an Official Firebird installer for the Windows platform is now available for download.
Update: The installer now needs testing.
I personally find it more convenient to unzip than to install, but hey, choice is always a good thing. One less stumbling block for newbies.
Agreed...it's always nice on a windows machine to be able to install/uninstall an application to it's own directory. You know for sure that the application isn't screwing around with your system directory (overwriting dll's etc).
I hope they'll keep the unzip option, along with the installer.
(With the unzip option we can generate our own installers, run Firebird directly from a CD, etc)
no reasong why you couldn't still run from a cd even if there is an installer, it's not liek there will now be a ton of registry entries.
I think having an installer will make it easier for me to convince people I know to switch.
