An internet suite packed with features. FREE | WWW.SEAMONKEY-PROJECT.ORG
SeaMonkey, born from the classic Mozilla Suite, is one of the most complete, powerful and feature-rich browsers around today, even when put against the likes of Firefox or Chromium.
The SeaMonkey Suite consists of a web browser, email client, WYSIWIG web page composer and an address book manager. Other features can be found as add-ons from the Mozilla store, such as Chatzilla (an IRC messenger), Lightning (calendar), DOM inspector and more — many add-ons from the vast Mozilla collection are compatible with both Firefox and SeaMonkey as the browser engine code in SeaMonkey is synced with the engine from Firefox.
For instance, the latest SeaMonkey 2.46 has the same Gecko engine as Firefox 49, so both browsers render web pages identically, in theory. SeaMonkey keeps the tradition of the classic web browser, as it was seen back in late the 1990s (no Australis-like interface, for instance). For many users, this design is more appealing than fancy modern browsers, but you can customise SeaMonkey with a custom set of useful add-ons if you wish. This way, you can bring back close buttons to tabs, turn the menu bar into a compact button and adjust the application behaviour to your liking. The essential Firefox add-ons, including the broad selection of ad blockers and audio/video downloaders are also compatible with SeaMonkey.
Apart from the browser component, the suite also has a robust email client, which works with all modern mail services, such as Gmail. It’s noticeably lighter than Thunderbird and doesn’t have as many advanced features (for example, you’ll need to manually fill in your incoming and outgoing server details), but it works beautifully.
The Mozilla Composer is another nice addition for those who want to study HTML basics. Simply design a page in the visual editor and explore the code in the next tab.
