Mozilla Firefox is an open source graphical web browser developed by the Mozilla Corporation, and a large community of external contributors. Firefox, populary abbreviated as FF in much the same way Internet Explorer is abbreviated to IE, started as an element of the Navigator browser component of the Mozilla Application Suite. Firefox has replaced the Mozilla Suite as the flagship product of the Mozilla project, under the direction of the Mozilla Foundation. Firefox market share continues to increase as it offers a very fast, secure easy to use browsing experience. Fetaures such as tabbed browsing originated with Firefox, and the Firefox browser renders HTML correctly to the latest standards.
Mozilla Thunderbird is a free, cross-platform email and news client developed by the Mozilla Foundation. The project strategy is modelled after Mozilla Firefox, the web browser. Just as Firefox aims to redefine the web browser, Thunderbird aims to refine the email and news interface. Way back in December 2004, the first version - V1.0 was released, and received over 1,000,000 downloads in its first ten days of release and has been downloaded more than 300 million times since. Thunderbird can manage multiple email, newsgroup and news feed accounts and also supports multiple identities within the user account. Features like quick search, saved search folder, advanced message filtering and message grouping help the Thunderbird user manage and find messages.
The imaginatively named SeaMonkey is a free, open source, and cross platform Internet suite that is the continuation of the former Mozilla Application Suite. SeaMonkey is community driven. The project is led by a body called the SeaMonkey Council ! The SeaMonkey all-in-one internet application suite was previously made popular by Netscape and Mozilla, and the SeaMonkey project continues to develop and deliver high quality updates to this concept. SeaMonkey contains an Internet browser, email & newsgroup client, a web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat and also some web development tools.
