The best version is the one you have been using for a while to your satisfaction.

Not if that version has publicly known exploits that have been patched in the next version.

The wise man does not rush.

Unfortunately, this isn't really true for security updates, and often is followed to the point of exaggeration. See: Conficker infections.

Unfortunately, most of these answers don't address my underlying question. Are the newer versions of Seamonkey backwards compatable with my older version of Windows (Win2kpro)running on outdated hardware? Also, do they hog resources the way that newer versions of windows do? In other words, my old PIII-900 with 256 megs of RAM runs Win2K pretty well, but I suspect it would bog down under XP, which is one reason I've not upgraded. But at this point it is also tying me back to legacy versions of some software and I'm wondering if Mozilla/Seamonkey falls into that category.
