If you're not using Firefox, you're not surfing the web, you're suffering it.

Ford wasn't so interested when Microsoft named their file/web browser "Explorer", neither was Lincoln when Netscape called their browser the "Navigator" :)

Netscape's navigator name came several years before Lincoln's navigator. I don't know about explorer though.

There's a big difference between a car and open-source project, but not between 2 open-source projects !!!!!!!!!!1

Personally, I like the new name and the fact that the e-mail client will be called Thunderbird. However I will stick to my old client, Calypso untill there is a stable and reliable release of Thunderbird. I can live with changing and updating the browser but the e-mail is another matter.

not if one is a relational database and the other one a web browser. and also not if the name that these projects share is a widely used name (such as the one of a mythological bird?), and no made-up, unique name, like "Mozilla", "GIMP", "eMule", "gaim", "SquirrelMail" for example.. 0_o

It seems the name thing has been beaten to death. I doubt anyone would render a legal decision that naming a browser Firebird is deceptively similar to a database of the same name or an attempt to trade off the goodwill of the database. Now, back to the title of this thread. If Firebird has in fact landed, where is it? :)

It seems that I read somewhere in the Forum that some changes had been made in the Mozilla trunk that caused some new bugs to show up. It was then stated that these bugs would need to be worked out first. Then the new Firebird nightly would come about and hopefully a new release shortly thereafter.

Check the link out. Stated the similiar thing as what I wrote. :|
