Seamonkey 2 Beta 1
Anyone following my ramblings recently will know that I've had a lot of problems keeping my browser operational. This applied to Opera 10 but much more so to Firefox which I really need for the site work. I tried 3.5.1 & 2 and both crashed regularly. Having wandered around the rest of what's available I installed the latest Seamonkey Beta three days ago and so far it's 100%. It uses the Firefox 3.5.1 core and although the extensions are so far limited, two of the most useful, NoScript and Adblock Plus, are both available and working fine with me on XP Pro SP3.

It's fast, nicely laid out, and there are other skins available if you don't like the standard issue.

hey MC can you use the fanboys adblock list on this browser?

It gave me a whole load of block lists to choose from when I installed it but I can't remember if this was one of them :D

ok thanks MC.

Right, now having had some time to re-visit this for you, here is the choice of block lists presented with the plug-in.
Attachment 232

The list you mention is not listed but it is still on their website as being maintained. This means you can choose to add it manually if you wish.

Hope this helps :)

Just by way of an update I tried all day yesterday and today at various times to crash this browser and only succeeded once :)

I've got the NoScript and Adblock extensions installed just like I had with Firefox previously and of course Seamonkey has integrated mail which for me is a huge bonus.

It doesn't have the easy site rating options of Firefox but with this level of stability who cares, I've bookmarked them instead.

Yes, I can understand that for sheer speed your choice has to be King. I'll have to check out the new version myself and see.
