There is no reason to replace mozilla some people preffer it some not.
Just add Firefox and make it selectable in preffered applications.




Actually, there are several:

1. Mozilla (Seamonkey) is considered deprecated by mozilla.org. "Firefox is the future."
2. As a result of #1, more development happens for Firefox; bugs are more likely to get fixed in it.



Yep, though there still is a community around the suite (seamonkey).



A user community, sure. A development community? Not really.

Not completely gone. Beonex is still based on seamonkey. And so are several other offerings.




That won't happen for a long while AFAICT.

3. No future Mozilla threads along the lines of: http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2004-July/msg00315.html


One could easily come to the conclusion that the new Mozilla release schedule with the extra alpha cycle is to slow down releases for fear of needing a 1.10. Silly? Mozilla avoided 0.10 in the pre-1.0 days. Firefox is doing the same today. One could then further conclude that 1.9 (later this year) will be the last in the Seamonkey regime....

Hmm, interesting.


Only time will tell...
