Most People Agree: Phallus is a Really Bad Name for a Browser
Thursday April 3rd, 2003
For our last poll, we gave you a selection of the more, er, interesting suggestions for Phoenix's new name and asked you to pick the worse. 3,436 of you rose to the challenge, with Phallus coming first with 27% of the vote. Clint Eastwood was next with 18%, followed by Surfzilla on 12%. Cthulhu and MozJunior both received a 9% vote share, while Feenix and the insect-related Lepidoptera both got 6%. Last place was practically an honour in this contest and was hotly fought-over by Dodo, Fred and Duck (all 3%), with Duck just gaining the coveted spot. Phoenix's real new name will be announced soon.
Yesterday was a major day in the history of the Mozilla project with the unveiling of the new Roadmap. All large changes have their supporters and opposers, so we'd like you to tell us where you stand on the proposals. Make your decision, vote and watch the latest poll results to see what others think.

"As far as I know, Phoenix the company makes BIOSes, and Mozilla's Phoenix is a web browser. How do they two compete in any shape or form?"
Phoenix Technologies make a Web browser for their BIOSes (called FirstView Connect or something). The idea is that if your OS fails to start one morning, you can connect to the Internet and download fixes or whatever.
