Mozilla First Release? "Mozilla 1.0"
Thursday June 29th, 2000
There has been some question as to what the first release of Mozilla will be called. But now, in a post to the n.p.m.seamonkey newsgroup, Mitchell Baker states that the name of Mozilla's first release will officially be "Mozilla 1.0". They decided to use the "1.0" appellation because, "this is the first release developed through the open source process, and much of the code and the architecture is new". The user-agent will still begin with the "Mozilla/5.0" substring.

don't forget that MSIE returns Mozilla in its user agent string. The key differentiator is the additional info appended afterwards... Mozilla.org sounds cool.
MSIE 3 had a user agent of Mozilla 2 and it was a pain so the sensible thing to do is continue as stated with the UA version number matching the Browser version number.
