SeaMonkey 2.0 released

The SeaMonkey Project

The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop the SeaMonkey all-in-one internet application suite (see below). Such a software suite was previously made popular by Netscape and Mozilla, and the SeaMonkey project continues to develop and deliver high-quality updates to this concept. Containing an Internet browser, email & newsgroup client with an included web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat and web development tools, SeaMonkey is sure to appeal to advanced users, web developers and corporate users.

powered by Mozilla Under the hood, SeaMonkey uses much of the same Mozilla source code which powers such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird and Miro. Legal backing is provided by the Mozilla Foundation.

Can't help myself. Had to reply again after editing my above post. Can you people here think on your own? One person says how ugly the gui is and everyone after that repeats it. WTF?!!

Half the problem with the world today is no one can think on their own anymore. Seamonky isn't popular because of it looks? How stupid!! If that's your only complaint, you obviously don't know much about browsers, IMO, and are just content go with the flow of what every one else does, says and thinks.

Firefox is only as popular as it is because of this exact issue. One person says how cool it is and everybody else thinks so too. Personally, I think Firefox is ugly as **** and even worse at browsing.

I'll use, and do use, Seamonky everyday as my main browser. Blows the hell out of Firefox anyday!!

FYI:
GUI = obsolete, definitely needs updating. Not for Vista or 7 users who like "pretty" desktop themes + gadgets; ;)
features + security = same as Firefox, uses same Gecko code, that's why Seamonkey was just updated to include Firefox 3.5.4 security updates;
add-ons = supports most skins + add-ons/extensions Firefox does [+ very few minor differences to match Seamonkey code: http://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/ ], again, based on same Gecko code;
e-mail app = based on Thunderbird code;
purpose = business, enterprise, server, network, must be tested and be reliable in critical environments.

It has it's roots in Netscape, so it would. The idea of a "suite" of internet apps seems to me to be so outdated these days. Where is the market here?

I guess my point was that netscape didnt look good then, and it still doesnt look good now lol

that's one nasty looking gui. they need to fire the folks responsible for the atrocious design. one would bore oneself to death if one has to stare at such archaic visuals all day long.

they didn't design it, they just took it from the discontinued Mozilla Suite, itself based on and made to look like the classic Netscape

i don't mind it, and i feel right at home using it's HTML editor

The whole package looks outdated. Other than enterprise users, I can't see anyone using this. FWIW, it does seem like a pretty solid package though.

This is the problem with software today, everyone thinks everything has to look "pretty".

Seamonkey does not only look old but none of the tools in it are especially good either. The mail client is average, Composer is a joke, having an IRC client built into the browser doesn't make a lot of sense, and the 'advanced features' are in Firefox and most are standard to all browsers.
