Maybe I'm missing the broader strokes, but I just saw a news item about Mozilla SeaMonkey 2.0 being released... What's the difference between SeaMonkey and Firefox? Just the e-mail/rss plugin that SeaMonkey has?

I've just always used Opera and web-based mail... But I'm considering a shift to linux with the latest Ubuntu release (new nvidia drives = widescreen support finally?), and might as well check out my other options, since 90% of my time on any computer is spent connected to, and consuming media from, the net.

The short story is

A group of people in the Mozilla community, preferring Mozilla Suite's more in-depth interface, began a project called SeaMonkey, which aims to "deliver production-quality releases of code derived from the application formerly known as 'Mozilla Application Suite'." For instance, what would have been Mozilla 1.8 is SeaMonkey 1.0.

SeaMonkey is a continuation of the original full suite that was known as Mozilla.

See below for a comparison chart:

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
