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.


#26 mozilla.org/1.0 is an agent string, not a site

Try thinking of mozilla.org as a source instead of a sink...then it would be more like naming your child after specific angiosperm reproductive organs, except you're not naming a kid so it would be more like identifying a browser by its home in the internet domain namespace. Or, if you really must think of it as a sink, think of it as a sink for something other than bio-waste...something positive, like source code maybe. Hope that helps.
