from the site:

Raindrop is a new exploration by the team responsible for Thunderbird to
explore new ways to use open Web technologies to create useful, compelling
messaging experiences.

Raindrop's mission: make it enjoyable to participate in conversations from
people you care about, whether the conversations are in email, on twitter, a
friend's blog or as part of a social networking site.

Raindrop uses a mini web server to fetch your conversations from different
sources (mail, twitter, RSS feeds), intelligently pulls out the important
parts, and allows you to interact with them using your favorite modern web
browser (Firefox, Safari or Chrome).

As interesting to me as the tool is the design process that Mozilla
has adopted during early UI iterations. Bryan Clark from the Mozilla
team posted a message about the process on his blog
(http://clarkbw.net/blog/2009/10/22/raindrop/).

A few days ago Mozilla started posting design comps of Raindrop on
Flickr for review and commentary
(http://www.flickr.com/groups/raindropdesign/).
