    I have just installed it on Scientific Linux and am rather impressed. It is Firefox 7 based and comes with integrated mail&newsgroups plus html composer and other goodies like DOM Inspector. The mail client (Thunderbird based) is especially useful and the interface is user friendly. Only problem I found is that it does not open pdf's in the browser, only in a new window, which is strange as it should use the same plugins that Firefox uses.

    Screenshot of mine without Personas as I prefer the default theme. :)

    Maybe Mrk. will deem it worthy of review when time allows ?

    I'm not sure about Linux but if SeaMonkey behaves the same as on Windows, you might be able to change this in:

    Edit - Preferences - Browser - Tabbed Browsing/Link Behaviour

    Also check out Cat Thief's Mostly Crystal theme. I use this Linux theme on my Windows desktop PC.

    & SeaTab X to close tabs Firefox style.

    Yes, it looks cool. :cool:

    Don't forget Addon Update Checker 1.12 to keep all those add-ons updated (if it works for Linux).
