Firefox's older brother gets an update

Subject: General Tech | August 14, 2006 - 11:51 AM |

Remember Mozilla, the predecessor to Firefox?  The web browser suite is still alive, being maintained by fans of the extra functionality who call it Seamonkey.  NewsForge has tried out the newest version to see what has changed, and how well it can compete with Firefox.

"The Mozilla project scuttled development for the legacy Mozilla Suite in 2005 after shifting focus to

work on Firefox and Thunderbird. However, rather than abandoning the project entirely, the Mozilla

Project provided the infrastructure to allow the community to continue development of the Mozilla

Suite as SeaMonkey. SeaMonkey 1.0.4 was released recently, so I decided this would be a good time to

check in on SeaMonkey to see where it stands. The suite holds up well, but it's losing ground rapidly

to Firefox and Thunderbird."
