SeaMonkey 2.0 has been released for a few days now, would anyone like to try? It uses the same internal platform as Firefox 3.5.4 and is now much closer to Firefox as far as user profiles, add-ons and functionality of user interface elements are concerned.

See the release notes:

Despite what I said in another thread a few days ago about using Opera I've now switched to V2.0 of SeaMonkey because it's easier for me when doing the site work. I'm using it on both my Ubuntu and Vista partitions and really like it.
I have just AdblockPlus, NoScript and WOT extension installed which is all I need. I've always preferred an integrated mail client rather than using a separate app like Thunderbird and now that the SeaMonkey interface has been improved I really like it. It's much faster on Ubuntu than it is on Vista but that's probably down to my choice of security software.

LOL... just barely. Next time .

The update fixes a critical security vulnerability, so all users are advised to download and install this update at the earliest.

That's interesting because with this page loaded on my system I get 80,000k for Seamonkey (with email client enabled), 83,000 for Opera (without email client enabled) and 73,000k for Firefox. Can't say about IE because I won't use it. The only browser which does push my resources through the roof (including CPU) is Safari, and this is a real shame because I really do like it. This is with x64 Vista Ultimate & 4G.

I tinkered around with a few other browsers since moving back temporarily to Windows and for plain surfing I really liked QtWeb. The only problem I had though was insurmountable for me in that I could log on to the main site here but rarely into the forum as well. I say rarely because occasionally I could. I tried everything with the cookie setup and other settings but it was just too unpredictable. For anyone not needing this requirement though it's definitely worth a look.

Firefox, most vulnerable browser? Is this for real?

Quote:
Among Web browsers, Mozilla Firefox had the largest percentage of Web vulnerabilities, followed by Apple Safari, whose browser showed a vast increase in exploits, due to vulnerabilities reported in the Safari iPhone browser:

I personally don't ever read into too many tests that are done.
