Scalix Corporation, known for its enterprise email and calendaring platform on Linux, today announced Scalix 9.1, delivering desktop-grade productivity on the award-winning Mozilla browser, Firefox Preview Release and the Thunderbird application. These new clients are supported on all popular desktop platforms, including Linux, Windows and Mac OS. They have full interoperability with Outlook 2003 clients, allowing users uncompromised freedom of choice on the desktop.

Scalix’s Mozilla and Firefox support includes advanced functionality previously limited to proprietary browsers. Features such as drop-down menus, cut-and-paste, drag-and-drop and local caching for performance all enhance productivity and are must-haves for power users of email and calendaring.

Mozilla is widely acclaimed for its security, quality, advanced features and high degree of customizability. Because of this, Firefox Preview Release has logged a record-breaking 5 million downloads since it was released last month and is rapidly gaining market share.

“We are gratified to see Scalix certify its email and calendaring platform for Mozilla 1.7, Firefox and Thunderbird. High levels of compatibility between web applications and Mozilla applications represent an important step forward in preserving choice and innovation,” said Mitchell Baker, president of the Mozilla Foundation

“We believe in giving our customers choices without sacrifice, so we have made the investment to give users of Mozilla and Firefox software equal footing with Internet Explorer and comparable functionality to Outlook 2003,” said Julie Farris, Scalix’s founder and chief strategy officer. “Web clients are the anytime, anywhere way to access email and calendaring. Given the mission-critical nature of email, browser-independent web client access to email is increasingly important to our customers."
