33 <application>SeaMonkey</application> is a browser suite, the Open Source
34 sibling of <application>Netscape</application>. It includes the browser,
35 composer, mail and news clients, and an IRC client. It is the follow-on
36 to the Mozilla browser suite.

40 The Mozilla project also hosts two subprojects that aim to satisfy the

42 separate applications for browsing and e-mail. These subprojects are
43 <xref linkend="firefox"/> and <xref linkend="thunderbird"/>. Both are
44 based on the <application>Mozilla</application> source code.

344 Along with using the <quote>Preferences</quote> menu to configure
345 <application>SeaMonkey</application>'s options and preferences to suit
346 individual tastes, finer grain control of many options is only available
347 using a tool not available from the general menu system. To access this
348 tool, you'll need to open a browser window and enter
349 <systemitem role="url">about:config</systemitem> in the address bar. This
350 will display a list of the configuration preferences and information
351 related to each one. You can use the <quote>Search:</quote> bar to enter
352 search criteria and narrow down the listed items. Changing a preference
353 can be done using two methods. One, if the preference has a boolean value
354 (True/False), simply double-click on the preference to toggle the value
355 and two, for other preferences simply right-click on the desired line,
356 choose <quote>Modify</quote> from the menu and change the value. Creating
357 new preference items is accomplished in the same way, except choose
358 <quote>New</quote> from the menu and provide the desired data into the
