Includes a lot of great features and tools, but would love to see an updated, smoother interface or some updates to compare with the very intuitive Firefox and Thunderbird.

V2.3

This program has really been growing on me lately. Was using it as an alternate browser but gradually finding it to be very stable with quite a few nice extra settings. Additionally, the very stable and clean included HTML editor has made my life a LOT easier.

V2.11

I tested this briefly last week. I was thinking that it would be just as customizable as Firefox. Unfortunately, this was not the case.

Below are my comparisons between Firefox and Seamonkey.

The IRC client is simply the Firefox extension, ChatZilla, bundled into Seamonkey.

As for addons, some of the most popular Firefox addons such as Adblock Plus and Stylish are available; however, a lot of other extensions have not been ported over.

Skins are lacking as well and I found it hard to customize the interface; the default look and feel reminds me a lot of the older Firefox builds (pre-v3.0).

Overall, Seamonkey is functional. But, if you're looking for a customization experience similar to Firefox, you will be disappointed.

V2.12

Hmm ...
When you make it seem that easy, perhaps a new SeaMonkey Add-on could do that automatically as well?
Perhaps we could suggest such an add-on?
But would the add-on site host it?

v2.21

So that author could do the same for Seamonkey?
Or is the app SeaMonkey compatible.

So I've taken another look at SeaMonkey recently and while some of my comments above are still true, SeaMonkey is actually quite a lightweight version of Firefox and Thunderbird.

To convert some Firefox and Thunderbird addons to work with SeaMonkey, use the following site:

I've made a bunch of UI customizations using Stylish and it is looking better, but the default theme is still ugly as hell. Definitely stuck in the past. Wish I could easily change the default icons, but other than that, I'm quite pleased with SeaMonkey's performance.

I've finally added SM to my favorites.

@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.

v2.46

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...
