SeaMonkey 2.7

SeaMonkey is a web-browser, advanced e-mail and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editing made simple -- all your Internet needs in one application.

  • Tabbed browsing gives you a better way to surf the net. You no longer have to open one page at a time. With tabbed browsing, open several pages at once with one click. Plus, your homepage can be multiple pages, in tabs.
  • Popup blocker lets you surf the web without interruption from annoying ads.
  • Image Manager lets you block images to remove offensive images or speed up the rendering of web sites.
  • Find as you type gives you another way to navigate a page. Just start typing to jump from link to link or to find a word or phrase within a page.
  • Plus all the features a modern browser should have including: Advanced security settings; Password, Download, and Cookie managers; Themes; multi-language and multi-platform support; and, the latest in Web Standards.

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.

The changes page lists an overview of new features and fixes relative to our last stable release.

Don't expect SeaMonkey 3.0 anytime soon. The SeaMonkey Council aren't focusing on major
version numbers. It's more than likely, after v2.9 it'll be v2.10, v2.11, v2.12, v2.13 ... etc.

I raised this question, on the SeaMonkey General section of the MozillaZine forums several
weeks ago. According to one reply, SeaMonkey 3.0 is only really likely to appear after any
major changes to the Mozilla codebase that merit changing the major version number.

is seamonkey 3.0 gonna be something groundbreaking?

i kinda like it because it supports most of the firefox addons, but i dont like the stiff and old UI

so if they plan to revamp it im up to try it for more than a few minutes

With regards to SeaMonkey 3.0, see my post below.

As for the (as you call it) "stiff and old UI" ... the SeaMonkey Council have no plans to
follow the likes of Firefox, IE9 and Chrome, by dumbing down the GUI to something
resembling a browser for a tablet device. The classic standard GUI is staying.

However, toolbar elements of the GUI can hidden/unhidden on the fly as and when
you might need them to be hidden/unhidden, by using the "grippies" on the left.

My Linux installs just updated to 2.7 beta 5 yesterday/last night.

I check for updates once a day, at a minimum. Just updated on a Windows machine and came here to see if this was posted!
