- SeaMonkey windows can now be themed with Personas (lightweight themes).
- The bookmarks system has been reworked to use the Places framework shared with Firefox (already used for history data in SeaMonkey 2.0), including a new Bookmark Manager and fast bookmarking button in the location bar.
- Find in Page now works with a toolbar instead of a modal window.
- OpenSearch plugins are now supported and the default for web search.
- An optional search bar (including suggestions if the search engine supports it) is available in browser toolbar customization, and an engine manager for OpenSearch is available.
