Mozilla Branding and Visual Identity Proposal

Thursday October 23rd, 2003

Steven Garrity has written a proposal for the branding and visual identity of the Mozilla Foundation and its products. The document, which does not necessarily reflect current thinking, recommends dropping the red Mozilla dragon head, clairifying the names of the various products, bumping the version number up to 2.0 when the switch to standalone applications takes place and making the icons more consistent. The Mozilla branding strategy and the Mozilla trademark policy give some insights into the Mozilla Foundation's plans for the Mozilla brand but note that both documents are currently under review and are likely to change in the future.

Thanks to Slashdot for alerting us to Steven's proposal.

I agree on the plugins being a very important issue as well. I know some will not agree, but if we are targeting end-users, then Flash should be installed by default, or at least be prompted if they want to install it.

Ideally, it would prompt for installation of Flash and other media plugins such as RealAudio & Quicktime, for example.

As for that existing "flash.xpi", if it is hidden, in the sense that users dont even know such thing exists, it's like not having it... I think the best option would be to prompt plugin installations, or at the end of the browser installation (assuming it would have an installer in the future) it could show a start page showing where and how to install those.
