SeaMonkey is a project to create an integrated internet application that consist of a browser, email client, newsgroup reader, composer, address book and IRC chat. It is based on Mozilla Gecko engine and modelled after Netscape Communicator.

The SeaMonkey project is led by the SeaMonkey Council. A few issues that this council managed are legal issues and release management. The SeaMonkey trademark policies and issues can be seen here. As the SeaMonkey is based on Mozilla engine, those trademark not covered in SeaMonkey trademark will be based on Mozilla trademark policy.

I had been using Netscape package since I started using window-based browser in the 1990s and I liked it very much. When Netscape internet project was terminated, I tried looking for a package similar to it. In the mean time, I have to use Firefox which is very much like Netscape but I still prefer Netscape package.

I think SeaMonkey software is worth trying out. It is an open source software and its source code is available for downloading by anyone through the internet. Just take note of its license and that the source code is licensed under MPL (Mozilla Public License) / GPL (GNU General Public License) / LGPL (GNU Lesser General Public License) tri-licence. This mean it can follow any one of these licenses.

Also take note of the release packages or SeaMonkey End-User License under the Mozilla Foundation and Creative Commons Attribution Share-alike license which is under Creative Commons.

Reasons I like SeaMonkey
Firstly, the tab browsing was available long time ago. The last one I used for LINUX system was Netscape 5 and SeaMonkey has this too. This removed the necessity of having to open many windows.

Secondly, and most importantly, the Netscape and SeaMonkey bookmark can be easily saved and transferred to other Operating Systems. This is very important to me because I use a few operating systems in my computer.

Thirdly, Netscape package and SeaMonkey mail client puts my incoming mails in text format. Of course, only if you removed all the not text mails and attachments. Therefore, I can easily save the mail file and read it without needing the browser.

Fourthly, SeaMonkey is a very light package (today's standard), just about 13 Mb and has almost if not all the necessary software for internet use.

Fifthly, SeaMonkey can be downloaded free of charge from the internet. As it is a community project, donations can be made only if you want to.
