Seamonkey web browser tutorial

Seamonkey web browser is not an alien for Slackware users while it maybe so for other Linux distributions' users. Actually, Seamonkey is all-in-one Internet application suite, consists of a web browser, email & newsgroup client, HTML editor, IRC chat and web development tools developed by Seamonkey project community sponsored by Mozilla Foundation. Seamonkey maybe new but when we start exploring its menu, we can see that it resembles the old netscape navigator which can be found in default installation of many Linux distributions including Redhat Linux.

Those who missed the once popular netscape navigator can now enjoy the new Seamonkey and no need to worry about security and stability patches because Mozilla and SeaMonkey project community continue developing and delivering high-quality updates as well as new features and improvements to the project. For a new generation who has no chance to use netscape before, or anyone who's looking for a new web browser package, give it a try. Seamonkey is using the open source Mozilla Gecko engine, the same platform as Firefox, there's no doubt about it's capability including speed.
