SeaMonkey 2.1 Introduces New Features
SeaMonkey 2.1 is available in 21 languages, for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
Most notably, this release features for the first time:
* Sync allows you to share your bookmarks, history, passwords and tabs across different devices (computers) in a secure way.
* Personas let you choose from thousands of easy to install themes, giving you a more personalized browsing experience.
* An optional search bar gives access to OpenSearch search engines and suggestions.
* The new Data Manager unifies management of permissions, cookies, passwords and form data.
* Improved handling of plugins, including the ability to delete Flash cookies and survive plugin crashes.
For a more complete list of major changes in SeaMonkey 2.1, see the What's New in SeaMonkey 2.1 section of the Release Notes, which also contain a list of known issues and answers to frequently asked questions.

As an FYI to people reading this, I *just noticed* that the seamonkey website cache is delayed in updating. Meaning that the 2.1 page notes it is a testing-only release, this is incorrect and it is in fact our real, final release. The website should be fixed in the next few hours.

I just downloaded and installed V. 2.1. It appears I lost all my bookmarks in the process. Is there a way to locate and save them or will I have to rebuild my bookmarks?

What a sad day, Seamonkey works now like Firefox
- no replacing of tabs
- no "group of tabs"
Seamonkey has become uninteresting for me.
