Mozilla Firefox / Thunderbird / SeaMonkey
Firefox - Nothing but the browser, baby! This is the ultimate IE (Internet Explorer) replacement. Features include built-in tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking, and automatic updates.
Thunderbird - This is a standalone e-mail and newsgroup (Usenet) client that is the perfect companion to Firefox and replacement for Outlook Express. Features include built-in RSS feed support and automatic updates. With Bayesian filtering, Thunderbird is smart enough to detect and filter junk mail automatically.
SeaMonkey - This is a suite featuring the best of Firefox and Thunderbird integrated into one application. Opening links in your e-mail into a tab in the browser is a breeze! SeaMonkey also has a basic HTML Editor (Composer) and IRC client (Chatzilla). This is what I personally use and recommend.
Mozilla: The History
The Mozilla Project more or less tossed out the 4.x code and created a new browser from scratch with all the features that Netscape users had grown to love. After nearly 2 years of development, beta versions of Mozilla were finally released. In an effort to appease die-hard Netscape fans looking for a new release, AOL released Netscape 6.x which was based on an early beta version of Mozilla. The software release was a big flop. The application was slow and buggy and arguably crashed more often than the Netscape 4.x browser. In 2003, the Mozilla Project released a final stable version...1.0. In the meantime, AOL has almost completely disassociated itself from the Mozilla Project and has plans to turn the Netscape brand into a web portal and budget ISP. The Mozilla Project has expanded into developing more open-source software and now calls itself the Mozilla Foundation.
On August 3, 2005, the Mozilla Foundation announced it will only continue work on its stand-alone browser, Firefox, and e-mail client, Thunderbird. A group of developers separate from the Foundation has devoted itself to continue developing the Internet suite now dubbed SeaMonkey. The name is the internal code name for the suite since the Mozilla Project's inception. The suite will continue to use the open source guts of the Firefox browser, Gecko.
