SeaMonkey 2.17

The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop the SeaMonkey all-in-one internet application suite. 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.

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.

What's New in SeaMonkey 2.17:

Building on the same Mozilla platform as the newest Firefox release, it delivers the latest developments in web technologies such as HTML5, hardware acceleration and improved JavaScript speed.

SeaMonkey 2.17 is available in 26 languages, for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Most notably, this release features for the first time:

  • Continued performance improvements around common browser tasks (page loads downloads, shutdown, etc.).
  • Continued implementation of draft ECMAScript 6 (clear() and Math.imul).
  • Canvas now supports blend modes.
  • Various audio and video improvements have been implemented.
  • The Details button on the Crash Reporter has been fixed.
  • Fixed several stability issues.
