Reasons to Switch to Mozilla Firebird

Saturday April 26th, 2003

David Tenser writes: "Ben Goodger, the Mozilla developer who gave us the newly designed Options window in Mozilla Firebird, has written a very nice document on reasons to switch to Mozilla Firebird instead of using other browsers. The document covers all major features of the browser and is written for end-users as well as developers and web designers." also has a more general section on why you should be using Mozilla.

Update! At the request of a senior Mozilla Firebird developer, this MozillaZine article was withdrawn for a short time while the linked document was updated to meet the Mozilla branding requirements.

Please ditch the "Firebirdô". You have argued that a) "Firebird" isn't trademarkable, b) "Firebird is only part of "Mozilla Firebird", c) "Mozilla Firebird" isn't a trademark, only the internal code name for a project. Are you guys duplicitous, sloppy, or just stupid?

Use the tm symbol is legal notice that you claim exclusive right to the mark "Firebird." You don't. So stop. Now.
