    It will only be tested internally until the team is confident that no public user will be sabotaged by trying to use the client.



  • Mail client should be a separate executable. I wish devs would focus on the web browser–there are many essential features still missing.

    You are free to use browser and email in the fashion you feel they "should" be used.

    Thankfully, what you "WISH" the Team would do (violate their promise they made to the internet-using public when they launched) is not the governing principle here. What they WILL do is keep their promise. If you don't like what they promised, no one is forcing you to use a product whose guiding vision you don't like.

    We'd love to see you fall in love with Vivaldi, but even if motorcycles are your passion, it's poor form to picket Ford for making cars.

    I can't disagree more.

    There isn't any need of a separate email client. It's plenty of them. Would be absolutely pointless to waste human and financial resources to reinvent the wheel.

    On the other hand Vivaldi is already in good shape, and the email client is actually its main missing feature. Practically everything else can be get, trough small mods and/or few selected extensions, until the few features which are still missing will be implemented natively.



  • From what I understand, separate teams are working on the browser and mail client anyway.

    As best I understand, there's a team of 4 working on the mail client, and everyone else on the browser. The mail team was just two guys for a long time, and recently it "doubled," meaning it should now be four guys. I strongly suspect the two other developers were hired, not poached from some other team.
