MX 17 Repository: The Seamonkey Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Wed May 09, 2018 1:36 pm

We now have Seamonkey 2.49.3 in the main repository.
SeaMonkey is a free and open-source Internet suite. It is the continuation of the former Mozilla Application Suite, based on the same source code, which itself grew out of Netscape Communicator and formed the base of Netscape 6 and Netscape 7.

Compared to Firefox, the SeaMonkey web browser keeps the far more traditional-looking interface of Netscape and the Mozilla Suite. Many Firefox and Thunderbird add-ons can be modified for compatibility with SeaMonkey, although add-ons built with the WebExtensions architecture used by newer Firefox versions are not yet compatible. It is also more suitable for older hardware than Firefox

Thank you so much for keeping Seamonkey up to date! Seamonkey has thousands fewer lines of code than Firefox, yet it does everything Firefox and Thunderbird can do. Superb on older hardware.

Seamonkey 2.49.4 Release is out!! I hope someone will be aware and release it soon, also if some maintainer can add it in as an metapackage in the MX Package Installer will be greatly appreciated and since I am not the only user who use Seamonkey in MX Linux and the most legacy browser up to date, it will greatly appreciated if it's added in the repository as a metapackage it's such a wonderful browser. :happy:
