Yuk. I'm using Thunderbird expressly because it is not a stupid web

we have now. Forget addOns, for one. First Web Extensions with limited
permissions, and now this...

There is no thought of servers - Thunderbird doesn't provide servers.
Also, web technology <> web front end.

See https://www.ghacks.net/2015/12/12/libreoffice-plus-thunderbird-love/

  "Thunderbird over the next 3 years needs to convert to being a web
   app that can run on any browser that supports ES6 Javascript and HTML5.
   (web app does not imply cloud-based, only that the underlying platform
   is js/html).

Ok, so no cloud-based crap, but it sure looks like TB would disappear in favor of something that ran in the browser. So what would it be, a WebExtension? I really think a real application will forever be faster and better than any addOn. I don't want to run my email in Firefox...
