SeaMonkey or Mozilla

I have an old configuration with Windows 98.
If we ignore security problems.
Do you think that Mozilla 1.7.13 is better than SeaMonkey 1.1.8 ?
1.7 is the stable branch and I think 1.8 is not.
Is it better to use Mozilla 1.7.13 for the stability ?
What do you think ?
Thank you very much.

Mozilla 1.7.13 is old, and has a big list of security problems, while 
SeaMonkey 1.1.8 is the current version of the suite, with all security 
problems fixed. SeaMonkey 1.1.8 is what Mozilla 1.8.x would have been, 
and 1.8 is a very stable branch actually, 1.9 is not yet.
We had to rename the suite from "Mozilla" to "SeaMonkey" mostly because 
of legal reasons, but the current, most secure and best version is 
SeaMonkey 1.1.8.

I love SeaMonkey. It's everything I always loved about Netscape but
better. But why does the other Mozilla browser get to have a cool name
like "Firefox" and we get "SeaMonkey"? Let's call it "Steppenwolf" or
"Duet" or "Synergy" or "NetVista" or something :-)

When Netscape was under development, the code name for the work was 
"Mozilla".  When Netscape spun off development to open source, they used 
the code name, and it stuck.

Mozilla's code name for suite development was "SeaMonkey". When the 
council spun it off, it seemed historically accurate.

Then again, I'm not sure why a browser named for a red panda is all that 
much better then one named for a brine shrimp!

SeaMonkey is a current, active project, gaining users regularly.

Mozilla SeaMonkey and Mozilla Sunbird on U3 Smart flash drives
Hello, everyone! My name is Valeria Zysman and I type from Buenos Aires. Well, you'll see, there's a mobile platform for USB flash drives called U3 Smart (http://u3.com/), which is designed by SanDisk. U3 Smart flash drives run on Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP (all versions and service packs) and Windows Vista (all versions and service packs as well). It is similar to PortableApps.com platform but is NOT a PortableApps.com platform. For instance, Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird U3 Smart builds update without the need of reinstall all the whole program itself but the...

Rant: The Mozilla suite (aka SeaMonkey) should be a wrapper for Mozilla software
Name: Tim Chambers Email: tygrus_at_iinet.net.au Product: SeaMonkey Summary: Rant: The Mozilla suite (aka SeaMonkey) should be a wrapper for Mozilla software Comments: It seems a waste to have parallel development of browser in Firefox and SeaMonkey. The suite should be the wrapper for the other applications. A light install could just be the browser (Firefox) or add the mail client (Thunderbird). You can download Firefox to update the browser, run the Thunderbird installer to add mail client, or run the full suite installer to add/remove several. Links show in installed...

When you do get to the page, SeaMonkey is spelled 'Seamonkey'. Not only do Mozilla dis SeaMonkey by hiding it three obscure pages in, but then they spell it with a lowercase 'm'. My we ...

Building SeaMonkey 2.35 off mozilla-release or mozilla-38esr+THUNDERBIRD_38_VERBRANCH
rsx11m and I think that we should build SeaMonkey 2.35 off mozilla-esr38 since we can use the Thunderbird release branch which has: 1) all the patchs needed for Thunderbird/ Mailnews so we don't have to land these again on mozilla-release. 2) the latest stability and security fixes for Gecko 38 in a form which shouldn't break any APIs or ABIs that we are using. I think Callek said he prefers using mozilla-release as our base but I don't know how adamant he is. Phil -- Philip Chee <philip@aleytys.pc.my>, <philip.chee@gmail.com> http://flashblock.mozde...

Who's monkeying with the mozilla.support.seamonkey: record in my news.mozilla.com.rc file?
Every several months something corrupts the contents of the mozilla.support.seamonkey: record in the news.mozilla.com.rc file of my SM profile. All of a sudden, all of the unread articles in the newsgroup are marked as read. This happens in between news reading sessions. i.e. when I connect to the server the next time, the number of unread articles reported has dropped from whatever it was when I ended the previous reading session, down to only the number of new articles that have just arrived. If I open the .rc file with an editor, the record for the newsgroup has been modified to s...
