Default Re: Mozilla SeaMonkey/thunderbird

I ran Seamonkey before. The downside is resource intensive. I was able to run Seamonkey on 120MB minimum! Three tabs.

Thunderbird is a mail client. Nothing is stored, except if you use Gmail. It will download a copy, but if you want to delete the e-mail, you need to go to Gmail and then delete it. Then, go to Thunderbird to delete it.

yeah thunderbird only stores gmail messages and seamonkey is quite resource intensive but if you have a modernish enough computer it should be no problem

Still. You definatelly should get another browser that does the same thing with less RAM.
