Review

This program is an Internet suite containing all you need to surf the web in a single package. First of all, it has a Web browser, which is not very different from any other, except maybe MS Internet Explorer, which is heavier and slower than most of the other browsers. The SeaMonkey suite also has an e-mail and newsgroups client which can be used insead of MS Outlook or any other client. It is also lighter and faster than its MS counterpart. The suite also has a IRC chat client. All these features are readily available from the program's main interface. You only need to click on the corresponding icon at the left bottom of the interface. You can customize the program by adding themes and add-ons. Since it is based on the Mozilla architecture, its customization features are pretty much the same as those of Firefox.

Although the program is pretty decent, it has several disadvantages too. The main of those is that, to open a new tab or close an existing one, you need to right-click on the tabs bar, open a popup menu and then select the corresponding option. This is awkward and time-consuming. If you want an alternative to your existing web browser, then you may want to try this one.

Simply wonderful antivirus solution that everyone should be using. Products such as Norton, McAfee, Trend Micro, AVG, Avast and god knows how many others are 'ok', but do not provide great protection. In fact, in our agency alone, we see so many infections come across the wire with these software install, that we remove them on site in favor of PCAV (Panda Cloud Antivirus). For the user it's just a simple install. They have to do nothing other than install it. No configuration, no updates, nothing. Even if viruses are found, they do nothing. PCAV is a fully self-managed application that protects you from pretty much anything on the net. And, the next best thing: It's very good at protecting it's code. Many systems which have been ravaged by viruses find it hard, very hard, to infect the PCAV root binaries. I install it on very infected machines, and the program runs and cleans w/o issue. Simply amazing system. Very fast too.
