    Just wanted to quickly add that I really did have high hopes of liking seamonkey and being able to go with it, and that may very well happen yet, but just not as it stands right now. Glad it's already working out and suiting the needs of some of you, though!

    I have to agree with some of the posts here. Seamonkey seems a bit unpolished. To me it looks and feels retro. I have the 2.8 version installed on my system which I DL'ed from the site. Most of my favorite extensions are not compilable with this version yet and I really wish they would place the close button on the tabs.

    I believe it's supposed to be retro - for everything else there's firefox.

    My extensions are working ok in 2.8 - though I only use noscript and ghostery.

    I'm still trying to adapt but won't be able to lose Firefox completely as there is no Firebug working for 2.4. I actually quite like how it looks; reminds me of the good old days

    To add to what I reported above regarding my most recent trial of seamonkey, the only thing that I really liked about it was the 10+ megs (installed size) that it gave me as compared to the 32+ megs (installed size) for firefox. Even then, it felt a bit slower than firefox, and space is certainly not an issue, so there was pretty much no compelling reason to stick with it, at least not yet anyway. I'll very likely play with it again at some point in the future, though.

    Well, I've adapted to Seamonkey almost completely. It is now my default Browser / Email Client (after I got fed up with Thunderbird locking up repeatedly) and the only time I use Firefox now is when I need to use Firebug.

    I love it! It's my default app for browsing and e-mail too. Midori crashes all the time (even the newest version) and FF is ssssllllowwwwwwwww. My only gripe is that I had to add a PPA to get the up-to-date version.
