SeaMonkey for Mac2.53.7

12 April 2021

Web browser with IRC chat, HTML editing, and more.

What is SeaMonkey for Mac

SeaMonkey is a Web browser that shares much of the same base code as the popular Firefox Web browser. It also contains an advanced e-mail and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to deliver production-quality releases of code derived from the application formerly known as "Mozilla Application Suite". Whereas the main focus of the Mozilla Foundation is on Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird, our group of dedicated volunteers works to ensure that you can have "everything but the kitchen sink" and have it stable enough for corporate use.

What's new in SeaMonkey

Version 2.53.7:

Note: You MUST absolutely do a full backup of your profile before upgrading from a version earlier than SeaMonkey 2.53.1. This version of SeaMonkey makes changes to your profile that can't be reverted in cases where you need to go back to the older version.

SeaMonkey is the best browser I've used. It lets me organize my browsing, sort bookmarks and track data while I investigate issues on the net. I don't need separate applications to work with my email and browsing, SeaMonkey does it all. My only issue is that it can sometimes be slowed down by the spinning wheel, requiring me to press the <Esc> key multiple times to exit from the blockage.

The first thing this software did, was alerting that the 2.49.2 did not work on my machine, so I tried the 2.49.1 instead. When I tried myself at the add-ons, there was no ad blocker available, so I had to throw this thing out of my system.

This version of SeaMonkey killed my previous Mac to the point I had to buy a new machine. Even now the Mac can browse using his version but as soon as I try to access email it crashes. Its a terrible shame as S/M is my preferred browser.

Review is for any version after 2.26. TLDR: don't bother. Buggy as a summer night. 2 quick ones off top of head...Passwords are forgotten that are suddenly available when going back to 2.26 (but then email passwords are forgotten by 2.26 when regressing), and getting to the ones that are stored is made as stupidly difficult as possible with the "Manager". Cursor arbitrarily stops responding to arrow keys in text fields including emails. I've been a supporter of the SM way since the Mozilla M-builds in the 90's, 2.26 is where I stop following along for a while. This has happened before in the progression, hope they get the car on the road again.

The weird scrolling jumping issue with yahoo is resolved in this version BUT now our work MS Sharepoint site is inaccessible. The links do not resolve to even bring up the page. I think it is choking on the authentication. Verified Sharepoint was up through Safari. Deleted seamonkey 29 and put back 26.1 and Sharepoint came right up. Something in the new version is either not compatible or broken.

With the new version, it still is a very stable and powerful application. Why more developers don't try to create an all-in-one Internet application is beyond me. And rather than open a new window for viewing Mail & Newsgroups separately, how about allowing to open different functions like that in a tab? Just one window for all features, with separate tabs. But still to this day, you cannot get blocking abilities incorporated completely. Just AdBlock, really. It would be nice to get DoNotTrackMe to work with it, or even GlimmerBlocker. But no, so I won't use it.

I'd been using SeaMonkey as a Browser off & on for years, and kept it, mostly, for Composer. Now, it's the only Browser I use because of its consistent performance. Composer has remained relevant for me. I can do quick content updates as though I was typing in a text editor with its WYSIWYG. For throwing together quick no-nonsense webpages, Composer is all I need. While I'm no WebMaster, I know enough to insert a little CSS here & there. Also, I still think Frames come in handy. Thanks to the Developers. I truly appreciate all the hard work this team has done throughout the years to keep SeaMonkey going.

SeaMonkey is a must for anyone who started out on Netscape Communicator (the original powerhouse web apps suite) and appreciates the value and utility of such a full-featured, well-integrated suite. For those who don’t know the history, Netscape Communicator was succeeded by the Mozilla Suite. When Mozilla Foundation decided to focus on its individual apps (Firefox, T’bird, etc.), SeaMonkey became its own independent project. The apps in the SeaMonkey Suite are both powerful and elegant. The Navigator browser is still my browser of choice, as is the Mail & Newsgroups app. And there is seldom a day that goes by when I don’t use Composer. The Address Book app has been the weakest link in the suite (that was true even in the Mozilla Suite), but its print functionality has improved. I can't comment on the IRC Chat app as I've only used it a couple of times, but it seemed functional enough. Perhaps the biggest weakness in SeaMonkey is its documentation; It could use far more detail to help the user who is unfamiliar with its many powerful features. However, I offer that ONLY as an observation, not as a criticism. I do recognize that the most obvious solution to the documentation problem is to do it myself. After all, the SeaMonkey Project is maintained by volunteers. One of these days I'm going to MAKE the time to improve the documentation. In the meantime, I will continue to use SeaMonkey with nothing but the highest sense of gratitude to its developers. It is an extraordinary achievement. Its power and flexibility probably exceed the needs of most users, but I suspect that there are many folks who would benefit greatly from using it if they only knew what it can do. The price (free!) is certainly hard to beat.

Whoa! Still trying to get this review right! 1. By commenting on the shareware developers, I don't want to dismiss the work done by the Mozilla community pro bono on SeaMonkey. It's awesome! 2. I help an emerita professor (pro bono) with her Mac problems. This extraordinary woman is still writing books in her eighties! Anyway, she has used Netscape Navigator since its inception, so in order to ease her into "the modern age" I segued her into the SeaMonkey platform. This has proved "just what the doctor ordered" for her and has kept things relatively simple for me.

I use SeaMonkey to create and edit a number of websites. One reason is that I'm cheap and don't want to pay a bunch of money for a commercial or shareware app to do these tasks. Yet I would be happy to plunk my money down if I could be assured that they could give me a better user experience. Having tried trial versions of a number of them, I'm still not convinced that they would. I used to own Dreamweaver, and while I miss may of its features, I can't justify it expense. (Am still trying to get my employer to buy be a copy. So far no luck.) To give credit to those who do create web design apps for the shareware market: I admire what you're doing and would love to choose your product .Yet at this point I'm not sure which one would be best for my uses.

By wanting to do too many things, I got the feeling that SeaMonkey ends up not doing anything properly, and loses people in the intricacy of its functionalities and support websites. I tried it for a long moment, then wanted to use the HTML editor, only to find that it didn't behave in a way I could understand and that there was not much help to obtain from the website. It might be a great tool for many people - although I think that as a free alternative, both Safari and Firefox are decent and updated very often - but sea monkey is a very complex world one has to learn its way into. I apologize to anyone if this comment is hurtful, I seem to have missed a point, but when I tried to access a "bug reporting" or "faq" or "suggestions" page, I was all the more lost and didn't feel like my feedback was needed. On top of a poor design, it meant the end for me. And I am still looking for a free, basic and simple WYSIWYG HTML editor...

Normally I am a Safari user, but I use SeaMonkey to do online Grad school work. It gives the illusion of being bare bones, but it is anything but. Setup is a breeze, the exact same setup as Thunderbird. Newsgroups format is very simple and setup with UMUC's servers went without a hitch. A very good multi-purpose app.

It's a lot faster and less buggy than version 1.1.18, but the auto fill forms function has vanished!!! There's some "work around" out there, but it looks like you need a degree to get it to work right. I sure hope this 'all-in-one' lives up to the term better with new releases. I'm a little disappointed with it. Though it sure comes in handy with all it's tools. The modern theme is much faster, though I must admit, both could be better. I still liked the Netscape look. PW manager is pretty freakin' awesome! Mozilla is very cool. -Mic

Best web browser of my choice. I use it always. The online community is tremendous, the updates are regular, and the power of this browser suite is amazing. When they go to v2.x.x I'll upgrade. I'm happy with this browser. It generally blocks out the pop-ups without all the add-ons. (I don't like add-ons)

i have only een using tiger for a few weeks and tried seamonkey because i didn't care for safari. I'm pleased with seamonkey (v1.7) except for the fact you cant copy and paste. When I try to highlight text, as soon as I move the trackball (logitech marble) I get a menu that looks like I right clicked. The copy and paste works fine in other apps. i found mention of this problem from 2006 but can't find anything recent. Is this a seamonkey bug or is it a logitech unintentional negative enhancement? thanks, Bob

I like it. You do have to change the theme, but there are some good ones available. I hope this continues to be supported as an alternative to Firefox. It is very fast on old machines and it's nice to have the e-mail client built-in. Hopefully more developers will get involved. The all-in-one approach definitely has life left in it, but the components could use a major update (think Flock).

like has been said this is a really great web browser if you like the old Mozilla. It has your basic web development abilities and usual mozilla/firefox browsing features. bulkier but very kitchen sink, which is what i like. Its html editor could use some updateing to be a bit less buggy but its just fine for quick edits...

I really enjoy using SeaMonkey. Having the email client and browser in one application is great. I like it simple - it works - it is that simple. With SeaMonkey my 83 yo mother can use one program on her Mac and not get flustered. I can answer her questions since I use the same program (by telephone since we live in different cities). If you don't like it don't use it. Don't knock it either because it does what it is supposed to do. BTW - my cellphone has no camera! And I don't text. My 1st Mac was the 512k Fat Mac. So at one time I was on the leading edge of the curve. I enjoy where I am now and appreciate the work of the good folks who have provided a super application for many OS. Geo

Very reliable for me. Not surprising considering it is the evolution of the original Mozilla, so there has been plenty of time for all the kinks to get worked out. And I use this over Firefox+Thunderbird because I actually kind of like my mail and browser in the same app for some perverse reason. I didn't back in the day when Netscape was popular, but I do now.

_ It feels old. It looks old. It looks ugly. Being the full suite, there isn't a single decent looking theme available for it. It's far more un-Mac-like even than Firefox. "Faster than other browsers on Intel Macs"? Not in THIS universe. May have it's uses, but for browsing, i'd choose it last among the free browsers.

Seamonkey is getting better and better. I love this browser, e-mail software. I have use many different browser and there is no one like this one. It uses firefox 2.0 engine but it is much faster on my Intel Imac then firefox. I dont know why but firefox it is getting slower and slower, seamonkey is always fast.If there is someone of the readers that know why, please let me know. Here is a tip, Orbit retro 1.8 theme for seamonkey is awsome:) Try it

I don't use Seamonkey as a general rule. Both Safari and Camino are far faster, both to load and in overall performance. The only thing slower than it on my trusty, aging Pismo Powerbook is Firefox 2.0, which takes a ridiculously long time to launch. However, one place where Seamonkey continues to rule is the Composer component, which is my first choice when it comes to GPL-ish HTML editors. While there are versions of the effort to isolate the Composer editor to standalone app - Nvu and its unofficial sucessor, Kompozer - for OS X, neither of them have the polish (with minor UI issues) of Composer. And, if you really want to have it all in one app, which is where the great granddaddy of all Netscape/Mozilla projects first excelled, you still can't beat Seamonkey. I just wish someone would Camino-ize it so that it actually respects the OS X GUI. Something like CamiTools wouldn't be a bad thing either.

I am browser addict, or was i may say, until now. I have used all mac browsers and no one can compare to Seamonkey. It has it all, e-mail client, web page builder (what you see is what you get) and the most stable and reliable browsers i have used. It is a nostalgic browser, when other browsers get more fancy and "in time", Seamonkey drive you to the net, smooth like a Rolls Royce and fast like a Ferrari and looks like a former DDR car called Trabant. I love it. I hope they keep the default looks. If you like a fancy browser, get Firefox, if you want the real thing, get Seamonkey, my pal on the net.

The last time I used the Mozilla Suite several years ago, it was too sluggish for my tastes. Seamonkey, however, feels like a drastic improvement. It even feels a bit faster than Firefox on my Mac! The interface isn't quite as easy to use as Firefox/Thunderbird, and it doesn't feel quite as native as more recent versions of Firefox, but it's chock-full of options that you'd have to get via many extensions. If you want even more features, just visit mozdev.org and install AdBlock and FlashBlock for ad-blocking, then MultiZilla for everything else. While I won't be switching away from my current combination of Camino + Thunderbird for daily use, it will definitely replace Firefox as my "fallback" browser.

I'm very happy to see that Netscape goes marching on, albeit under another name. Actually, I don't give a hoot about the browser, there are plenty of better and faster ones out there. But Composer is invaluable. Sure, Composer isn't Dreamweaver. But there are times when that's a Good Thing: because of its occasional bugginess, there are times I can't do some operation with it, and I fall back on Composer to bail me out. In fact, if the SeaMonkey folks wanted to do the world some good, they might best focus their efforts on improving Composer so that it could be regarded as a serious alternative to Dreamweaver (which, among other things, would mean developing and publishing some documentation.)

Though I will admit that Mozilla/Seamonkey is a bit dated as far as the looks go, it's gotten much faster (I remember just a year or so ago when it was as slow as you could get). And as an all-in-one solution - mail, page creation, navigation, and chat - it spins wonders around the rest. I use Camino, so I do not worry about RSS in a browser. No points off for that. Points are missing, however, for some muddling feature sets (for a quick "turn on/turn off" kind of person). Blocking of pop-ups and images, etc, are a bit confusing. I prefer Camino's quick and easy system. Points are also missing for customizability as compared to Firefox. I've never known Mozilla to have any stability issues, and I haven't had any problems yet. The new Universal works well, though it is a tad slow to start. No really big complaints, though. Mozilla has and will always be a more professional, office-intended browser with executives in mind, rather than just basic consumers. And it does its job rather well.

Not bad. Great all in one option but missing many customization features that Firefox/Thunderbird has. Like a good RSS reader, ability to customize the navigation bar or make small icons. Also needs a good default theme.

Users used to D/L and actually use the app before they made inane comments about icons and such. Seamonkey seems very stable and is nicely integrated. A decade or so has gone into the development of this application suite so it is less likely to add or subtract features over time. A good integrated solution for those who use their Mac as opposed to those who want to play. Not a toy.

SeaMonkey is the just the old Mozilla suite ... browser, email, etc. It's for those people who want it all together in one package. As I understand it a group of developers at Mozilla wanted to keep everything together and thus SeaMonkey was born. If you just want the browser, stick with Firefox.

I don't get it. Why can't the Mozilla team just focus on ONE browser instead of so many? Firefox is an excellent cross-platform browser. That's it. As simple as that. And SeaMonkey just sound absurd.

I... uh... seem to recall the SeaMonkey team running a contest for a new SeaMonkey browser icon. If that blue... thing... above is the best they could come up with (it's not -- there were certainly quite a few better entries at one time or another), I think it speaks volumes for a project that's essentially picking up an abandoned (and for good reason) ball and attempting to run with it.

Is anyone kinda turned off by the name? Sea monkey? In other words, possibly the greatest fraud in the history of childrens toys? How many kids (including me) excitedly waited for my glorious sea monkeys to arrive, and was terribly disappointed by its false claims? (Brine shrimp compared to the smiling, clothes wearing, volleyball playing creatures displayed on the box?) Doesn't give me the best initial impression of the app itself!

I'm not sure what has happened but the stability of the Mozilla Application Suite seems to be going backwards. Version 1.7.8 seemed rock solid compared to 1.7.10. That version is having stability and other problems for me: disconnected key bindings, lack of command key menu feedback, crashing when I look at the wrong way. I hope they've fixed some of these with 1.7.11. Because for a branch that is supposed to be undergoing maintenance and security updates, it's not good to introduce more/new bugs a la Microsoft. For these reasons, I've had to downgrade overall rating, tho I still feel Mozilla is the most feature packed and standards complaint browser available. By the way, seamonkey is the code name for the orginal Mozilla Application Suite which is ending it's life (supposedly) on the 1.7.x branch. Aviary is the development branch. If you want new features and such, you need to look to Firefox and the DeerPark development.

This browser is almost on 1.8 and still very buggy. No wonder it is being replaced with Sea Monkey. I used this for a day and suddenly couldn't get into my preference pane at all. It is a full featured browser and has a great mail client, I will give it that, but the stability issues are inexcusable.

No, the Mozilla Suite stops with the 1.7.x branch - Mozilla 1.8b4 was last of the 1.8 branches - now, it is on with SeaMonkey 1a nightlies (and pretty good it is, too.) Mozilla 1.7.x will have security updates for a while.

They say that 1.8 will be the last version of Mozilla. What they don't mention is that the 1.7 chain will just go on FOREVER. Twenty years from now we'll be using Mozilla v1.7.2143 on Mac OS XX.

Since I find no mention of a 1.7.9 release on Mozilla's website or any of the other news outlets, I have to assume this isn't an official release. The fact that it can only be found on Mozilla's ftp server under nightly builds confirms this. Nightly builds or snapshots are not official releases. I'll wait until they announce the real deal.

It would be quite convenient if you could actually find this browser to download... Perhaps Mozilla are using a Gorilla to post their browser on the net.. It would explain the problem..
