SeaMonkey 2.1 Introduces New Features

The SeaMonkey project is proud to present SeaMonkey 2.1: The new major release of the all-in-one Internet suite is available for download now! Building on the same Mozilla platform as Firefox 4, it delivers the latest developments in web technologies such as HTML5, hardware acceleration and improved JavaScript speed.

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.
