SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2 Introduces New Features

SeaMonkey
2.1 Beta 2
is available for free download now in 15 languages and makes a huge list of new
functionality available to a wider testing audience for the first time.
Please note that this pre-release version is still intended for testers only and might
still show some problems in everyday use. As always, we appreciate any feedback you may have
and encourage users to help us by filing bugs.

In addition to the changes in the alpha releases, and our first beta release, this version
features the following new
improvements
:

  • The new Data Manager is opened instead of the previous separate management windows.
  • Sync (f.k.a. Weave) is now included directly in SeaMonkey. Sync allows you to keep your
    browsing history, passwords, bookmarks, preferences and tabs in sync across different
    devices (computers) in a secure way.
  • The new DoNotTrack HTTP header can be configured in Preferences, Privacy & Security
  • Lightweight themes (Personas) support for the Address Book, Composer, and MailNews windows.
  • Much improved startup speed.
  • WebGL and D3D are now enabled where supported

We welcome any and all discussions on this beta on our
newsgroups,
or you can even
file a bug
if you find one. Be sure to check our
Known Issues
prior to filing bugs.

SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2 is
available
for free download
on the SeaMonkey website. Once you have downloaded and
installed this release, we’d like to encourage you to
get involved in
discussing and reporting problems as well as further improving the product.

Thanks for testing and helping us to make SeaMonkey even better!

One Response to SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2 Introduces New Features

  1. I just had a look at the 2.1 Beta version and Seamonkey is going to loose 2 of the relevant features, which are reason why I use SM and not FF: I’m not able to open a group of tabs with one click and it doesn’t replace a group of tabs any longer.
    I’m so disappointed. SM becomes a duplicate of FF. Now, there is no reason to stay with SM.
