30 September 2011 1,325 views No Comment

Rapid release is as rapid release does. Yesterday, Mozilla released version 2.4 and today there’s a patch for that. What’s all of this activity mean for users? Step into our parlor for the details about SeaMonkey and a fresh Firefox 7 bump, as well.

As far as this multipurpose web client is concerned, there aren’t any feature updates. However, SeaMonkey 2.4.1 (release notes) brings Mozilla’s browser-email-HTML-chat client up-to-speed with the changes baked into Mozilla’s flagship, Firefox 7:

Once You Know, You Newegg• Drastically improved memory use
• Bookmark and password changes now sync almost instantly when using Sync
• Added support for text-overflow: ellipsis
• Added support for the Web Timing specification
• Fixed several stability issues

Not a memory hog anymore and Mozilla browsers have been very, very piggy for years. Also, though not listed in the bullet points, SeaMonkey 2.4.1 includes the Gecko 7 browser engine, which is faster, more secure — you know the drill.

And, the difference between v2.4 and 2.4.1? It’s a bug fix.

In related news, Mozilla has pushed out Firefox 7.0.1 (release notes), which addresses a rare issue where some users could find one or more of their add-ons hidden after a Firefox update.
