[snip excellent seamonkey review]

Thank you for this eye-opener! I got really excited when I read your
review, an will immediately have a look at seamonkey. Sounds to me like
you found the holy grail of Email/Web software I was looking for so long
;-) And it even has roaming profiles! Finally I can convince some friend
of mine to give up netscape 4.7, which he keeps using solely for this
feature. Wow :-) What a pity that there's probably no chance for it to
be included in dapper.

Lucky :-) Adblock is IMHO the most important FF extension. I personally
won't browse the web without it anymore.
