SeaMonkey 1.0 Beta Released
After much delay, we've released SeaMonkey 1.0 Beta, based on Gecko 1.8 (which also powers Firefox 1.5). Some interesting changes since 1.0 Alpha: our new logo, tab drag-drop reodering, autoscroll, the ability to return to a tab's "parent" when it is closed, and numerous bugfixes.
We're planning to ship SeaMonkey 1.0 in January.

btw: the Window Icon (on WinXP) is still the old Mozilla Icon. you may want to change that too to the Seamonkey Icon

Just a tip, a good idea for a feature would be RSS support- like that which is present in most modern browsers nowadays. Another tip I have is to have some kind of a native skin- and then you might gain some more Mac users!

Does this version includes a -Decent Status Bar- ?
I hope it does...

We're working on some RSS support - we currently have a patch that adds Thunderbird-like RSS to MailNews, and would be interested in having it in the browser as well (when developers have time to write it!).

5 things I need to be absolutely happy with SM (now only simply happy-)))
visited context menus are not selected properly now
Saving pages with @import CSS and images in CSS
Direct editing of bookmarks (after 2 clicks)
Opening html files with cyrilic names from HDD (as I know - in 1.5 but with not correct encoding of letters in address bar)
Options how to save as
- with page title
- with page name
Thanks to devs for keeping alive this "a state-of-the-art web browser..."

Cache still disappears after browser crash.
Are you going to fix this problem in future?

vk, have you filed a bug for it?
Posted by: CTho at December 28, 2005 11:16 AM
This bug is very old and it has been filed before.
