    "Clueless reviewers"

    February 1, 2006  |   By Superstitious

    Version: SeaMonkey 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    #1. This is Mozilla, not a "clone" of Mozilla. Mozilla.org decided to stop actively developing the Mozilla suite. It's still in development, but Mozilla.org wouldn't allow the developers to use the Mozilla name. So, it's called SeaMonkey, which is a codename that's been around for a long time.

    #2. This is not a "clone" of Firefox. Firefox is a derivative of Mozilla, originally called Phoenix, that has a reduced feature set. It is only a browser, not a suite, and it doesn't have the level of preferences customization that Mozilla/SeaMonkey have. While Firefox is a good browser, and the one I tell Windows users to use instead of IE, the preferences richness and interface clarity of Mozilla/SeaMonkey beats Firefox in my book.

    #3. On Windows, it is possible to download an installer in order to only install the browsing component and spell-checking. Users don't have to install all the features, like the mail client. The OS X release could feature an installer, if someone wants to make one.

    #4. SeaMonkey offers a simple graphical web page creation/editing program that is derived from Netscape Composer. I don't know of any other free cross-platform graphical web page creation/editing program.

    SeaMonkey is my browser of choice when using Windows. It's a very good browser. It's not perfect, but no browser is. When I use OS X, I use Shiira primarily because my OS X laptops have slow hard disks and I don't have the patience to wait for gecko browsers to load (Mozilla, Firefox, SeaMonkey).

    So I tried it for 30 seconds. Seen it before. Been there, done that.

    Could at least come up with a fresh look for windows and icons.

    And the bubbles... um... not so much.

    "Nice, free WYSIWYG HTML editor"

    In addition to being "another browser," this is a free WYSIWYG HTML editor that is surprisingly good, given that it is $400 cheaper than DreamCrusher.

    "Staple item...good to keep on board."

    Summary

    Inasmuch as the SeaMonkey progect is the Netscape browser, etc., this is a browser I'll always keep on the hard drive just in case I come across something Firefox or Safari cannot handle.

    Plus, the web page app is handy for quick little pages.

    This is a stable browser compatible with just about everything out there short of proprietary MS junk.
