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

It doesn't seem to be compatible with Retina displays. The rendering of text is very pixelated.

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.

SeaMonkey is the best package for browsing, email, composition and accessing the web.


Just an FYI if you have an old G4/G5 based Mac get it out of the closet and on-line with SeaMonkey for PPC http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/45015/seamonkey-for-ppc

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.

Want to like it so much but I can't import bookmarks. It just sits there and does nothing with the .html file I exported from Safari.

So, did you file a bug report on Bugzilla? Or perhaps you didn't "want to like it so much" that you would actually take some action to help fix the problem.

SeaMonkey is built and maintained by volunteers. It is kept alive by people who care enough to keep it working. Dumping on it here because one feature happens to be (temporarily) broken doesn't help you or anyone else.

Just as a follow-up, this problem is covered under Bugzilla Bug 801450. A patch has already been submitted for review and is currently undergoing testing. I suspect this bug should be fixed in the next release of SeaMonkey.

The bug has been fixed, but it hasn't been integrated into a release version yet. It looks like it's slated for inclusion in Firefox 20 (Firefox is currently at v17.0.1), so there'll probably be a similar time frame for the fix to show up in SeaMonkey. You just have to give it time to make its way into the code base. If you want to follow the progress on the bug, go to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=801450 and add your email address to the CC list.

Hi Minz, you're actually running "2.4.1" while the new version is "2.13"; the placement of the decimal point being key :) I'll admit, their version numbering is definitely a bit confusing. You can find a list of all of their past releases on the bottom of this page http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/. I'd be sure to update to this version.

bobc4775 had trouble on 08 Dec 2007
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
