Interesting. I edited the install.rdf and chrome.manifest to try it in SeaMonkey and it's kind of a mess. :(
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

I've never tested it in SeaMonkey and would be very surprised if it works. It uses APIs that I think only exist in Firefox. Also in Thunderbird it doesn't work well...

SeaMonkey has 99% of the same back-end stuff as Firefox these days, so API's shouldn't be a problem. It sort-of works but when the browser comes back up it has no tabs. Also the mail/news window comes up (probably because of T-bird compatibility) even though I didn't have mail/new open. A restart correctly brings back the tabs... but that defeats the purpose. ;) Also I don't think my Stratini Artemia is compatible with it because elements of it carry over to other themes. Maybe I'll play around with it some time and see if I can get it running in SM.

It uses the Firefox sessionstore to remember the browser tabs which are then reloaded after the call to reload chrome wipes them out. Try running it through the Addons Converter.

Gotcha. I'm in the middle of a big move right now so I'll check it out when the dust settles.
