Then why is this note on the Seamonkey page under Installation?


Please note that installing SeaMonkey 2.0 will overwrite your existing
installation of SeaMonkey. You won't lose any of your bookmarks,
browsing history or mail and news messages, but some of your
extensions and other add-ons might not work until updates for them are
made available.

First of all, even if you install SM 2.0 in the default location, it
will not overwrite the existing SM 1.1.x. It installs to its own
location, and sets up a new profile in a new location. As long as you
do not uninstall SM 1.1.x, you cn easily run the two independently of
each other.

Well, all I can say is that installing 2.0 on Win XP SP3 installed to a
separate SeaMonkey folder in Program Files, leaving 1.1.14 untouched in
the folder.

On the other hand, on Mac OS X, I installed it as instructed to
Applications, which did overwrite 1.1.18.

At least that is what happened to me.


Do both SM 1.1.x&  SM 2.0 appear in Add/Remove programs? I'm also
running Win XP SP3 and want to give SM 2.0 a try. But, the prospect of
being able to run both SM 1.1.x&  SM 2.0 for at least a while is


Good question,and I am happy to say the answer is yes, on my XP test box, both SM 1.1.14 and 2.0 appear and can be uninstalled. BOth can be started and run.

Do note that the Mail/News data is now separate. If you download mail in 1.1.x and have it deleted from the server, it will not appear in 2.0, and reverse. For your testing period, you may want to have POP accounts set to leave copies in the server.
