I just wanted to take a moment to thank the SeaMonkey devs for making it possible for me to continue browsing with a Mozilla browser.

I have been using Netscape/Mozilla browsers since the Netscape Navigator (heck, even Mosaic!) days, but I have been unhappy with FF since v.29 and Australis. After trying pretty much every viable browser that's out there, and being disappointed, I had almost settled on using Pale Moon. And then it occurred to me that I had never given SeaMonkey a fair assessment, perhaps because I saw it as fundamentally "Firefox with a suite of other tools."

I'm glad I gave it another chance. This is exactly the browser I want to use, with control over the things I want control over, not a dumbed-down Chrome clone. As a bonus, I can run it on my Mac, Linux, and OpenBSD systems.

Now, if you also get Sync fixed, everything will be perfect! :mrgreen:

Indeed, I "third" that...
I have been a SeaMonkey user since before 1.0, used Mozilla before that, but switched to Opera for a while before "returning" to SeaMonkey.
SM (usually latest stable) on Slackware 14.2 x86_64.

And I fourth it!!

I started with netscape, then ???, then beonex, then seamonkey, and by migrating my profile over numerous differetn computers, I still have all my emails and bookmarks and contacts from as far back as 1998.

I surely do hope Seamonkey or equivalent will outlive me!!!! Many other program I used to use (except maybe Designcad and Microsoft office 2010) has been improved to a state of total uselessness.

Truly the very best (and only) integrated package that worth its salt on the internet! I am using SM 2.43 64-bit and it's absolutely excellent! Many thanks and Kudos to the SeaMonkey developers and maintainers. It's nice to have NETSCAPE functionality again! :mrgreen:

This has not much to do with it, what matters is my life expectancy, and having recently retired in very good health, that is a great question indeed.

Maybe even more importantly, will my money supply outlive me, hopefully by very little.....

I like Seamonkey as well; as long as I have uBlock Origin, NoScript and Flashblock addons installed for SM.
