Mozilla Focuses On Firefox And Thunderbird

Mozilla has decided to concentrate less on its "Seamonkey" software suite and stay focused on Firefox and Thunderbird.

Mozilla posted a letter on its website saying that it would discontinue development on SeaMonkey and will not release a 1.8 version.

"If we ship (Seamonkey) 1.8, we'll need to support that as well, and we just can't manage supporting that many versions as well as Firefox and Thunderbird releases," the letter said.

A CNET article says:

"The shift comes as Mozilla's Firefox has emerged as a viable rival to Microsoft's dominant Internet Explorer Web browsing software. The open-source software has put Microsoft on the defensive by garnering nearly 27 million downloads since its November final release. Thunderbird has received more than 4 million downloads.

Last month, Microsoft reversed itself and said it would release IE 7 with the next update of Windows XP. Previously, the company had said upgrades to IE would come only as part of the next major version of Windows, code-named Longhorn."
