The SeaMonkey page has a fine "Download Now" box.  But if you follow a link to the SeaMonkey news page or a particular news item such as the most excellent 1.0beta announcement, it has no link to get the product.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Read random blog entry about SeaMonkey.
2.  Follow link to news item, e.g. the URL above
2.  Get excited.
3.  ??! So how do I get SeaMonkey?

Actual Results:  
There's no link to get SeaMonkey.  The left-hand navigation on the news page is generic and takes you out of SeaMonkey.  So you have to guess URL's, or follow the link in "_SeaMonkey Project_ > News" back to top.  This is important when external sites link to the news item.

Expected Results:  
Individual news stories should include appropriate links to download, and perhaps the template for the SeaMonkey news page should include a low-key "Download SeaMonkey" (and links to the SeaMonkey Wiki pages that also have newsworthy updates.)

Felix Miata, I believe you are mistaken.  The URL I put in the URL field, , does NOT have a download link, hence my bug Summary.  My bad for writing ambiguously "the URL above".
