Editors' review

The Internet is a vast and wondrous place, but it might be difficult to see its possibilities if you always use the same Web browser. Fortunately, SeaMonkey for Mac offers a new community-sourced browser for Internet surfing.

SeaMonkey for Mac allows users to browse the Internet in a new interface. The program includes a wide number of normal browser functions including modifiable security, privacy, tabs, bookmarks, and history features. This program starts off as a pretty basic-looking browser, but you can easily configure it to suit your preferences. The overall look of the browser interface is similar to other popular browsers, with toolbars, address bar, and bookmark bar all in the expected places. The similarities between this browser and other browsers are beneficial as they allow the user to become comfortable with the program more quickly. The program includes an integrated e-mail application that is loaded with features and also includes instant messaging capabilities. Surfing works smoothly and the browsing speed is similar to other current browsers. This is a free program that is developed by volunteers based on community requests. Users can get involved in developing this program further by suggesting future modifications or by volunteering with development work.

SeaMonkey for Mac is a functional Web browser that has successfully integrated e-mail and instant message applications. This program would be appropriate for both personal and business Internet usage.

    "SeaMonkey 2.26.1"

    June 21, 2014

    Version: SeaMonkey 2.26.1

    Pros

    This is a fairly easy to use browser. I downloaded it to use it with the AARP web site since Firefox and Safari no longer do. SeaMonkey will be my backup browser instead of Opera. SeaMonkey is similar enough to Firefox that I could make it my go to browser.

    Cons

    Some of the SeaMonkey preferences/settings are not easy to find. Even though it's from Mozilla, the preferences menu is not the same as Firefox's preferences menu.

    Summary

    SeaMonkey is a decent browser for most users whether they prefer links to open in tabs or to open in separate windows. It really is flexible in that respect.

    "My favourite browser"

    February 08, 2014   |   By PaulKB

    Version: SeaMonkey 2.24

    Pros

    This is the only internet suite still being developed. In the early internet days Internet suites were more common. SeaMonkey integrates browser, email, and a simple (but for me adequate) html web editor. I love the integration between the browser and mail. Seamonkey uses the same rendering engine (GECKO) as Firefox and much of the low level functioning of the email component is shared with the ThunderBird email program. What makes SeaMonkey shine is the close integration between browser and mail. SeaMonkey is not the combination of FireFox and ThunderBird into one program. SeaMonkey is a number of tweaks to the user interface and a close integration between the browser and mail which creates an internet suite which functions much better for many users than a separate browser and mail programs.

    Cons

    The only negative I am able to think of is that there is no mobile version of SeaMonkey for tablets and phones.

    Summary

    Try SeaMonkey. It may become a favorit for browsing and email. Oh SeaMonkey does not force you to use its email program. If you prefer to use another email program you can set a preference in SeaMonkey so that when you click on an email address in the browser it will call up your email client of choice.

    Nice to play with. Won't put too much stock in it. Not until there's some serious amount of more work put into it.

    "Awesome - Fast and user friendly"

    January 19, 2012

    Version: SeaMonkey 2.6.1

    Pros

    I am an older retired woman and I like things user friendly. Seamonkey is, I play farmville - by Zynga (a game) and was surprised at how fast the game loaded. If you like things easy this is so much better than IE!!!

    Cons

    none so far

    "still a work in progress..."

    December 31, 2011   |   By danakao

    Version: SeaMonkey 2.6.1

    Pros

    Reasonably fast; doesn't crash when some applications (such as Flash) are used

    Cons

    Must use search engine to access a site--cannot go directly to a site just by typing in the web address.

    Summary

    As I mentioned, still a work in progress. Hopefully more people will discover SeaMonkey and this browser will be more polished as a result.

    "Fairly reliable backup browser"

    December 01, 2011   |   By danakao

    Version: SeaMonkey 2.5

    Pros

    Reasonably fast; I've experienced no crashes

    Cons

    Not as versatile as more common browsers like Firefox, Chrome, or Safari

    Summary

    Lack of versatility hurts this otherwise competent browser.

    "Does everything, fast and efficiently"

    May 08, 2011   |   By peripo

    Version: SeaMonkey 2.0.14

    Pros

    Fast, clean lines, very customisable

    Cons

    nothing i can think of.

    Summary

    I downloaded SeaMonkey to give it a try because it was touted as being faster than all the rest. It's really good but doesn't do anything other browsers don't do and I don't find it any faster than Safari. I probably won't use it as my default but it's worth keeping and it updates it's add-ons automatically without fanfare like Firefox or IE.
