Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Fast and light on resource usage
Pro Vim-style keyboard shortcuts and commands for rapid navigation
With suggestions/auto-complete to reduce the learning curve.
Pro Highly customizable
And quite easy to configure. You can even write your own config.
Call custom scripts on web pages or links (hinting mode).
You can use this for downloading of videos (youtube-dl, adfree), saving web pages as pdf or adding news sources to your RSS reader (newsboat).
Pro Great for Privacy
Makes no unexpected network requests by default, unlike most other browsers (Chrome, Chromium, Brave, Firefox, etc).
Pro Full internet suite
Wraps all your internet stuff together. It's like it's Firefox and Thunderbird all wrapped into one, and it kinda is. It's the continuation of the project both of those were extracted from.
Pro Not bloatware
Pro Designed for usability, not looks
Con Steep learning curve
If you're not a vim user, it will take some time to get used to the shortcuts.
As it is mainly written in Python, it's startup is slower than the competition.
Con Requires additional support and plugins for video playback
Con Software rendering only with Nouveau Drivers
Con Looks very old and outdated
Con Bloated with unnecessary features
Seamonkey has a browser, email client, and even an IRC chat. Too much bloat! It doesn't do one thing, let alone do anything well. It should be avoided.
Con No Addons
not a single adblocker or privacy addon that was useful
