Mozilla & Gecko clones "SeaMonkey is the successor of the Mozilla Suite, described as 'a community effort to deliver production-quality releases of code derived from the application formerly known as Mozilla Application Suite'. And it's finally got a brand new logo, one that supposedly represents a SeaMonkey but actually ended up looking like a blue bird, at least to my untrained eye." In addition, Camino 1.0b2 has been released.

I am not sure but isn't FireFox based on the original Mozilla 1.8. I could be a little off topic here. FireFox to me is a standalone browser version of SeaMonkey.

The core engine of FireFox is the same as Mozilla, but a lot of features have been removed, and most of the Preferences options have been removed. FireFox forces you to mess around in about:config to change a lot of options, when the suite has a nice interface to do it.

About the only thing FireFox does better than the suite is it has a nicer theme. Contrary to popular belief, FireFox eats more memory and is slower than the suite. It also requires you to add a bunch of extensions and mess with the config options by hand to get what you already get in the suite.

In the end, the suite is practical but FireFox is trendy, hence FireFox gets all the attention.
