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.

Much thanks and credit to Ben Goodger and the Firebird team for their continued dedication to the project.

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.

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.
