The question is when they will change the name Mozilla Firebird -> Mozilla ?
We know they had some problems with AOL dumping them but at least they should
show us the roadmap and say :"Here is the date where Mozilla Firebird is killed" .
ps: I use mozilla firebird every day , is a great browser and i think not the name make it
important ,it could be called "Mozilla" simple and still used .
It is the Firebird name just like the AMD Hammer processor name an internal one ? My hope is that
it will be droped or else i 'll start to promote "links browser" :)
