  • Window restore, go to File/Recenty Closed Windows to restore a closed window
  • Customizable toolbars, right click on the toolbars and select Customize… to add and remove buttons.
  • Cross session resumable downloads
  • Support for RSS and Atom web feeds in the Mail/News module
  • Emails open in new tabs instead of new windows for better organized email reading
  • Redone download, forms and password managers
  • An updated theme on Mac OS X

    Move mail from a windows to a tab… And I’ll probably move from Firefox and Thunderbird then…
    And remove toolbar grippers or use OS theme, they look terrible…

    I love Seamonkey 2. It is a very good, fast browser. UI can be a better, as they can remove the grippers, and have a better integration with the OS like FF 3.x has like Livio mentioned, but other than that I do like it.

    Paste (after a copy) doesn’t seem to work when editing pages in the composer. Paste is always grayed out. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      I’m having this problem as well, on Windows XP. All Paste options are always greyed-out on the menu. CTRL+V works for a normal paste, but it is impossible to do a “Paste Without Formatting” – even the hotkey doesn’t work.

      Had to downgrade to version 1.1.18 to get Paste functionality back.

    They need to polish the theme more a lot of work to do on it t still looks 2000 ish and needs to get caught up with ff I’m not like those people that say don’t make it like Firefox i say make it like Firefox but with a classic SeaMonkey twist give it the options to turn the new ff stuff off or on but turn on by default the then people that don’t want it can just shut it off

    yeah baby. seamonkey “modern” theme still rules.

    ‘paste’ has been buggy in seamonkey since the stone age.

    forget firefox.
