Seamonkey = firefox + composer + thunderbird + chatzilla
I find it convenient to have them all installed together, and running 
firefox + thunderbird at the same time takes more memory than seamonkey 
with the navigator and email agent open.  (Unless that has changed.)
There is also the plus of adding new navigator features to seamonkey 
after they have been tested on firefox, so there are somewhat fewer bugs.
Now I'm using upstream Seamonkey, but it would be nice to have an 
up-to-date version in Mageia.
(When I have more time, I might be interested in maintaining it myself.)
