+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.
