I was a loyal and exclusive Opera user from about v2.0 through 7.23, then about 7.5, they hosed the UI, so I stayed with 7.23, which forced me off Opera for a larger and larger percentage of websites as 7.23 became more and more out of date. I cast about for alternatives, and at about that same time, Firefox was starting to achieve viability, so since then I’ve used both, but have not been able to commit fully to Firefox either because it lacks the built-in email client Opera has.

Opera is pretty customizable too, but I never found a theme to let later versions emulate 7.23 or I would have upgraded. So does anyone know of either a way to make later versions of Opera emulate the look of 7.23 or know of an addon that integrates an email client (local, not webmail) into Firefox, preferably with the split pane view like Opera has?

Isn’t Seamonkey ...close to Firefox with the email capability?
