LXLE to switch to SeaMonkey as a default browser in their distros! 😎
The decision to switch to SeaMonkey as the default web browser for LXLE is something not taken lightly.
The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one internet application suite. Such a software suite was previously made popular by Netscape and Mozilla, and the SeaMonkey project continues to develop and deliver high-quality updates to this concept. Containing a web browser, email & newsgroup client with a feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat and an Address Book. SeaMonkey also has longevity under its belt plus a very close overall relationship with Mozilla. It uses much of the same source code which powers Firefox and Thunderbird while legal backing is provided by the Mozilla Foundation.
I think Linux can benefit greatly from suites because Linux doesn’t have a universal way to install or uninstall software across all the their distros. There is always a challenge when I want to find a specific app and install or compile it in my Puppy Linux machine. It just not as smooth as Mac OS or Windows.
Other cool power-users suites or browsers with rich features that I’m playing with are:
- Vivaldi (The next evolution from Opera-Presto)
- Otter Browser (great Opera alternative)
- Pale Moon (better alternative to Firefox)
- Maxthon (cool features)
- Dooble (good privacy browser)
- Classilla (rich browser for Classic Mac OS)
Just to name a few. 😉
