Not a big deal but that screenshot really needs an update. It doesn't do the TB interface justice on newer OSs/themes.

v38.6.0 released !

Been using for the last few years and it works very well,something that's important 4me is to save all my emails to a file that I choose. I have used many email apps over the years but it always seems at some point they discontinue them. I hope this is not the fate of "ThunderChicken" cuz I have really come to like it very much, in my opinion its a very good email service that does all I want and more. Thanks Mozilla.

@freakzoid: the "Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey" may be what you're looking for: https://addons.mozilla.org/sk/seamonkey/addon/classic-firefox-theme-for-seam/ ...

I use both this and the SeaFox extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/sea-fox/) and after some further tweaking, I am pretty satisfied with the results.

freakazoid on 2017-01-08 08:44

I use SeaFox as well, but I just use the Default theme.

Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey doesn't really make much of a difference in my layout, except a few icon changes.

Speaking of icons, use the Classic Toolbar Buttons addon to change some of the default icons. It doesn't change the Bookmark, RSS or Tab Throbber icons though.

Indeed. Please check the forum topic to see if your results match mine...

The program includes an exclusive and secure toolset for instant messaging, chat rooms, forums, direct messages (e-mail), file server, VoIP, channels for distributing content and link exchange. It functions as an open, distributed alternative to many commercial groupware programs.

Additional features include RSS feed reader, status messages (away/busy), different modes for low traffic, transfer and disk space limits, plugins, skins and much more. Cross-platform (Mac, Linux, BSD).

Forgot to mention the portable version is now chosen from the installer

webfork on 2017-03-17 23:00

@ozziguy: Looks like they're still offering the portable 7zip version, and it's 20% smaller. I'll go ahead and list both. Thanks for the note.

billon on 2017-03-17 23:11

UPDATED TO 12.18!!!11
no changelog yet on off. page

Specular on 2016-02-16 07:31

@billon mmm, it's odd. Just had a pop-up informing of a new version to download which is apparently v12.18 yet no official changelog has been released.

However did find an old My Opera stalwart who posted some of the changes over on the Vivaldi forums. Will continue this discussion on the PF thread...

Checker on 2016-02-26 18:15

Opera@USB v12.18 is available.
