My Favorite Puppy 4.2 Addition

As I looked at the recent release of the 100 MB Puppy Linux I realized Puppy 4.2 includes a few feature that are extremely useful for me. Puppy 4.2 comes with two window managers, choose either ICEWM or JWM which is appealing to a wider variety of Linux users. Users may also find appealing, the additional theme options with Clearlooks GTK+2 theme engine, SeaMonkey web browser with MonkeyMenu extension, Puppy control panel, Pwidgets desktop applications, AlsaPlayer and Pmusic for audio entertainment, Streamtuner internet radio, Gxine full-screen video playback, Puppy Web Desktop, extra shutdown options, a new game lineup and more. These are all great changes in my book but one of them brought me some great productive features.

I’ve used SeaMonkey plenty of times and enjoy the entire SeaMonkey internet application suite especially Composer, SeaMonkey’s built in HTML editor. This time around I was pleasantly surprised with the usefulness of the MonkeyMenu extension installed by default.

The MonkeyMenu extension for the SeaMonkey web browser adds a large amount of customization options to SeaMonkey including an additional 29 buttons that can be added, collapsible toolbars, and much more. Just take a look at the collection of MonkeyMenu options you can play with.
