Run Google Wave Inside Thunderbird 3

Filed under: Uncategorized — The Wizard @ December 10, 2009 10:52 am


Google’s Wave tool suffers from a “just another inbox” problem. So it’s great to see Wave running inside a tab in Thunderbird, right next to your email inbox, with a crafty little code tweak.

Among Thunderbird 3’s new features is Content Tabs, a way to monitor other web sites and web-based messaging from inside Thunderbird. The Quetzalcoatal blog hacked together a little code that opens Wave cleanly and conveniently inside one of these tabs, and even keeps it open after you restart Thunderbird.

To load it up, head to the Tools menu, select Error Console, and enter this line (be sure to select all of it):

Components.classes['@mozilla.org/appshell/window-mediator;1'].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIWindowMediator).getMostRecentWindow("mail:3pane").document.getElementById("tabmail").openTab("contentTab", {contentPage: "https://wave.google.com/wave/?nouacheck"});

Hit the “Evaluate” button when you’re done, and you’ll see a new tab asking for your Wave login. Log in, click “Remember” to have Thunderbird remember your password, and now it’s just like having a little browser tab opened on Wave.
