Part 1: Introduction (9 of 10)

Now, we've had support for sending email from web browsers for awhile - there's a "mailto" protocol that embeds this in html link tags. But email browsing and management is a whole different kettle of fish. There are good programs based on years of iterative development. I'm a fan of Eudora myself which integrates rather well with the web. I can "command-click" on a URL in an email message on my mac, to cause Netscape to display that page. Sure, Netscape 2.0 lets you render html in the message. But unless you think HTML ought to be the replacement for ascii, this basically saves one key click.
