+1! Current UI is almost unusable. When you read a message the only 
navigation links are available are "pref/next in the thread" and back to 
the global list of messages. So you should either read all messages 
sequentially in some linearized order and lost a context when jump from 
the end of one branch to the start of other branch, or switch to the 
three view and open every message in a separate tab and switch between 
tabs. I preferred to use Gmane, but its web-interface now doesn't work.

Does Mailman 3 provide a NNTP interface? The NNTP interface of Gmane 
still works, but it can be switched off at any time. It would be more 
reliable to not depend on an unstable third-party service.
