SeaMonkey for Windows 2.1 Alpha 3

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.

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.

SeaMonkey 2.1 Alpha 3 contains the following major changes relative to SeaMonkey 2.1 Alpha 2:

  • The browser can now be themed with Personas (lightweight themes).
  • The bookmarks system has been reworked to use the Places framework shared with Firefox.
  • SeaMonkey now defaults to tabbed browsing instead of opening new windows.
  • More compatibility with Firefox' tabbrowser API.
  • The tab bar received a visual refresh.
  • Address book toolbars can now be customized.
  • Find in Page now works with a toolbar instead of a modal window.
  • Gopher support has been removed.
  • Web developers can animate content using CSS Transitions.
  • XPCOM registration has been changed.
  • The W3C Indexed Database API is now available to websites.

The changes page lists an overview of new features and fixes relative to our last stable release, SeaMonkey 2.0.6.

Xenomorph said,
"Windows 2.1"?! My god, this must be ANCIENT!

Yeah,
I saw that also. I do believe there should be at least a comma after the word Windows!!

Seamonkey rocks. My primary browser and has been for a while now.

Almost passed out when I saw a news article about it (some what) on the front page.

The version number applies to the software, not to the platform that it is made for. Since the software is simply called "Seamonkey", not "Seamonkey for Windows" though, the proper way to write it should have been "Seamonkey 2.1 Alpha 3 for Windows". Now, for software like Microsoft Messenger for Mac (where these types of comments typically come up), it is proper to put the version number after "for Mac" since the actual name of the software includes it.
