AfterLogic WebMail Pro v7: The Future of Webmail-Frontends

I switched to Gmail. Do you know why? Not because of the features, partly because of the spam protection, but what really got me was the design. I was tired of the webmail interfaces of the 90s. Every service out there went 2.0 except for webmail interfaces. They got stuck in the last century. Had AfterLogic WebMail Pro v7 already existed a few years back, I might not have made the switch. WebMail Pro v7 is a PHP solution, any ISP or corporate email maintainer should take a long hard look at.

Does this remind you of the smoke scenery from last year, where you were also asked to exchange the background? What do these people think? Photo manipulation is as easy as one-two-three?

Moving Towards a Web without Plug-Ins

The Web began as markup only, and then some script and styling. For many developers, especially us veterans, it’s hard to imagine a Web without plug-ins. Since the earliest days, browser plug-ins like Flash and ActiveX have been the main way to create rich online experiences for more sophisticated Web experiences. And yet through the efforts of the industry and community, we have returned to a plug-in free Web once again. Much Web browsing today occurs on smart phones and tablets which have limited or no support for plug-ins. Modern browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 10/9 have embraced and implemented Web standards like HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript which, in most cases, now reach feature parity with plug-ins (more on those differences later) and are more interoperable across browsers. With more than 75% of all browsers in North America now compatible with HTML5, market researcher Forrester recently said it’s time to say “so long” to plug-in. “The tide,” pronounced Forrester analyst Peter Sheldon, “is turning.”
