SeaMonkey is a suite of Internet tools including a Gecko-based web browser, an email and newsgroup NNTP client and an IRC client which has many of the largest networks pre-configured.
The application is broadly based on other projects by the Mozilla project including the popular Firefox browser and the Thunderbird email client. One thing SeaMonkey lacks, however, is the sleek interface of Firefox and Thunderbird. With its underlying source code being very similar to Firefox, the SeaMonkey web browser is fully compatible with modern Firefox plug-ins and extensions.
The browser also includes many useful utilities which often offer more management capabilities than Firefox or even Chrome. It includes a password manager, a download manager, data manager while also offering the quick ability to switch between profiles.
As an email client, SeaMonkey is pretty similar to Thunderbird; it supports IMAP and POP3 servers but can also connect to newsgroup servers and download content through its usenet capabilities. If you're looking to switch from another email client, you can also use an import tool to grab the settings and mail messages from other email clients like Outlook Express or Eudora.
SeaMonkey's client also supports RSS and Atom feeds which can notify you of updates.
Other features and tools offered in this Internet suite include an IRC client called "ChatZilla", an HTML editor called "Composer" and an address book which supports vCards.
In closing, SeaMonkey is a powerful suite of various Internet browser and communications tools which provide an excellent set of features for web developers, coders and advanced users who know their way around different protocols and programming languages all the while offering a compentent browsing experience for people who have no need to inspect elements or connect to IRC networks.SeaMonkey features and highlights:
