I agree with others that I'd consider the Search Box and (to a lesser extent) FAYT GUI needless clutter, but if they were to be added as options, why not... What I miss the most is extension compatibility and management. For example, I had a hard time making AdBlockPlus work and now it does the job (congrats to the authors), but the patchy nature shows through (e.g. : AdBlockPlus status bar icon and button bar are sometimes visible in mail windows but never in browser windows). As for "Firefox users are just too accustomed to features...", I don't see the point. Different audiences, different UIs. It's not like Seamonkey is aimed at taking Firefox users back... Oh, and I, for one, don't care about themes (I couldn't even tell the name of the one I'm using right now... it's the default one and it's ok for me) :-) Kind regards, Vicne
