all-in-one Internet application suite is making steady progress to a 2.1 release, with beta 2 rolling off the presses yesterday
. While they insist that the 2.1 beta 2 update is still 'intended for testers only,' it comes packing a fair few additions to the SeaMonkey armory bringing it more inline with current Firefox implementations. Here's what's changed since 2.1 beta 1:
- The new Data Manager is now invoked instead of the previous separate management windows when needed.
- Sync has been added allowing browsing history, passwords, bookmarks, preferences and tabs to be synchronised between machines just like Firefox.
- DoNotTrack has been added as a Privacy & Security preference.
- Persona support (themes) has been implemented for Address Book, Composer, and MailNews.
- WebGL and D3D have been enabled for where needed and supported.
- Dramatic improvement in start-up speed.
If you're a SeaMonkey user and you haven't tried 2.1 yet, beta 2 certainly adds a few desirable features. So, if you're ready to take the plunge, then head on over to the SeaMonkey website
to get your download on.
