    I suppose most of them already know about Firefox, but they didn’t switch anyway. SeyMonkey seems like the logical choice.

    I agree with DAO, SeaMonkey is the logical choice.
    Unless they were under a rock or something for the past couple of years that is.

    Assuming that they’ve “already heard about Firefox” is fairly narrowminded. I have met and dealt with many people who have never heard of Firefox in spite of moving off the Suite to other browsers such as Netscape.

    If I were going to recommend a browser to anyone for any reason, I would recommend Firefox, all obvious biases aside.

    Well I switched from the Suite when my extensions stopped being supported, like Download Statusbar, and there was clearly a sense that Suite was being paid less attention to than this, what I saw as a side a project.

    So I made the switch, and there are things I still miss like being able to middle-click in Thunderbird and not having the link silently come up in a new tab in Firefox. I very much liked the visual stylings of the Modern theme. But now, I’ve completely adjusted and however much I try and use SeaMonkey, until it is more widely supported by extensions and has a really killer feature that Firefox doesn’t have, then I can’t even run it in parallel.

    I still watch SeaMonkey development though, as it is very intriguing.

    In my opinion, it really depends on what the user needs. For instance, if the user needs HTML authoring, neither Firefox or Thunderbird has them (NVu does, but is currently undergoing a major rewrite). If the user doesn’t need HTML authoring, I think it’s really a matter of personal preference.

    Jesse, I’m just using a wordpress plug-in for polling, called Democracy. I didn’t actually code the back-end of the poll.

    Seamonkey. It’s much better suited than Fx/Tb for suite-like behavior. Plus, it still looks and acts like MAS.

    Firefox, because there is were the focus of development is, it is the current version of “Mozilla”. If they say they’ve tried it and don’t like it, then refer them to Seamonkey.
