Mozilla Branding Strategy Clarifies Naming of Mozilla Projects and Products

Friday April 25th, 2003

FrodoB writes: "Christopher Blizzard has published to mozilla.org an article entitled Mozilla Branding Strategy, which clarifies the position of mozilla.org on naming of the application suite and the separate applications in milestone 1.4 and beyond. Essentially, the application suite is to be called 'Mozilla Application Suite' with individual names 'Mozilla Navigator', 'Mozilla Mail/News', and so on. The Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird names are simply codenames, and the resulting products will be referred to as 'Mozilla Browser' and 'Mozilla Mail'."

Indeed ! Nobody talks about Woody or Potato, it's Debian, fullstop. It's the same on another level. People talked about Phoenix 0.4 ans Phoenix 0.5, not Oceano and Naples.

BUT "Mozilla Firebird" is /also/ a standalone application, and its name will remain. the remaning only concerns Mozilla's modules, which will bear the NetscapeNavigator history.
