Roundcube allows third-party plugins and has a temporary plugin repository (until [the official plugin repository] (http://plugins.roundcube.net/) comes out of beta) with over a hundred plugins available, covering authentication, improved security and settings among many others categories. See More
Each contact can have their e-mail address, phone number, location, photos and associated URLs added to them. You can then group contacts and address your mails to the group instead of having to enter each person separately. Additionally, you can import vCards and CSV files as contact information. And, it has LDAP connectors. See More
Unfortunately, all interfaces of roundcube look very old. I hope there will be a progress soon, Google Mail and Outlook Webmail should be the role models here. But also Yahoo mail offers an intuitive design. If this open source software should survive, it must be completely renewed and bring up to new standards. See More
Taiga tries offering a complete Agile software development toolset. It includes complete solutions for issue tracking, videoconferencing, documentation (in the form of a wiki) and either a backlog or a Kanban board for managing user stories. See More
The best feature is its design: discourse is designed to aid in the creation of high quality online conversations. Flat discussions with well implemented quoting systems, expandable/collapsible replies, infinite scroll, clean UI and many more features come together to form a highly polished forum experience that makes legacy forums show their age. See More
Discourse has a simple user trust system that makes moderating the forum a lot easier. Users gain more permissions as they gain more trust, which limits the amount of damage spammers and trolls can do. Discourse co-founder Jeff Atwood also founded StackExchange, which is the gold standard for gamification/moderation systems so you can also expect Discourse to get better and better at moderation.

RainLoop caches messages to allow quicker access to your mailbox and to alleviate the strain put on the server. You can choose to disable it completely if you don't want it. Or, you can configure cache settings such as an additional caching key, browser-level cache, caching message user IDs while searching, etc. Even changing memcache hosts and ports and caching system data is possible. See More
RainLoop has an easy to use plugin system. You can find the full list of plugins in the admin panel (or see their code on GitHub). From the admin panel, you can, in a simple, user-friendly way, manage them - install, uninstall, update. Unfortunately, a number of plugins and the related documentation, currently, is somewhat lacking. See More
