Mozilla & Gecko clones "The first end-user release of SeaMonkey is now available. Seamonkey is the continuation of what used to be known as the Mozilla Suite; this release incorporates a number of features that we could get to know from the new releases of Firefox and Thunderbird. However, the integration between the applications is as tight as it has always been, for those who prefer this approach."

I'm glad to see that the old Mozilla is alive and kicking under a new name. But if I am happy using Firefox/Thunderbird, and if I have a serviceable IM program, what will SeaMonkey do for me that my current set of apps won't?

The same thing in about half the RAM.

Took the words from my mouth...

As much as I like Firefox, it didnīt live up to one of its main goals that was to keep a small footprint (regarding performance and memory usage). Seamonkey is actually much more leaner than Firefox. I hope that the fine people behind Seamonkey continue the good work that they have shown so far for the foreseable future.
