Features
9.09/10

The program supports multiple tabs and these can be arranged with drag and drop. New items (sites) can be added to Bookmarks bar with drag&drop too.

The omnibox is working slow, but at least you can manage default search engine.

It supports to customize default font, check spelling, includes a download manager and can be synchronized across devices.

The design looks classic and old, the browser doesn't provide a default search box. But SeaMonkey supports all extensions and themes available for Firefox.
