Brendan sees Mozilla developing into an open cross-platform alternative to forthcoming Microsoft technologies such as XAML and is looking to collaborate with other open-source projects to make this happen." The GNOME project is mentioned explicitly. Brendan's message is part of a longer thread about the goals of mozilla.org.

See my last reply here re: KHTML and do your homework before making browser engine comparisons by arguing from authority (Apple's or KDE's).

We gained sympathy and avoided a destructive fight by renaming Firefox, because the Firebird open source database project wanted to keep that name in trademark category 9 (software and electronics).

If you have a thunderbird extension question, try asking mscott -- he'll probably be able to help you.

The rest of your comments seem to be addressed in <news://news.mozilla.org/n….public.mozilla.seamonkey>.
