Re: Firefox deserves the boot!

hello everyone do not hang your hat on seamonkey suite; the seamonkey forum announced months ago [July] that there will be No more official releases of the seamonkey browser after version2.49.4 [firefox52.9].

That's probably good for now.

After MX-18 release there will be time to clean up the niggles.

Re: Firefox deserves the boot!

I remain a Seamonkey fanboy. It replaces both Firefox and Thunderbird with a single application that has thousands fewer lines of code than Firefox yet retains most of the cool stuff that made Firefox awesome before they started messing it up. It also does everything Thunderbird does, and with the ...

As a reasonably new user to MX I have two kernel related questions: 1. Is it wise to have multiple kernels installed on a single device (as it is, say, in the manjaro world)? 2. Is it wise to have an antiX kernel when running an MX desktop? For item 1, yes it's better to keep at least a old stable ...
