A line of Code that Opens Google Wave inside Thunderbird 3

Google Wave in Thunderbird

For Mac, Linux and Windows: This line of code exploits the Content Tabs feature in recently released Thunderbird 3. The Content Tabs feature allows you to display brows-able web content in a new Thunderbird tab – with this line of code created by Joshua Cranmer (Quetzalcoatal blog) you can open Google Wave right inside Thunderbird 3.

All you have to do is fire-up Thunderbird 3, then Tools -> Error Console. In ‘Code’ drop this code:
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"}); and hit ‘Evalute’.

Now Google Wave will open up in a new Thunderbird tab. Login and get started. Login for me was smooth without no issues. Good enough, even after restarting your Thunderbird email client the Google wave tab remains, all you have to do is login again.
