Reasons to Switch to Mozilla Firebird

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 At the request of a senior Mozilla Firebird developer, this MozillaZine article was withdrawn for a short time while the linked document was updated to meet the Mozilla branding requirements.

By my count this document contains 43 instances of "Firebird" without the "Mozilla" modifier. Each is an infringement of the Firebird trademark owned by the Firebird database project. Yes, it is true that repeating the phrase "Mozilla Firebird" 50 times in a single document is repetitious and tedious, but that is what you signed up to do.

Please remove this document until it conforms to your branding statement.
