From the XFCE user and its philosophy:
- it is GTK only (no mozilla libs as dependencies)
- its memory footprint is smaller
- filter possibilities are very smart, once you know how to configure it

I just listed what I found in claws and not un thunderbird.
The first point is not really relevant if you already use Firefox.
I use Epiphany-webkit as browser and claws as MUA, so, no mozilla libs.
