To name a browser

As you may be aware, the Mozilla Organisation are looking for new names for the Phoenix web browser, due to opposition from Phoenix Technologies. They’re the company responsible for a large share of the BIOS market – they make both PhoenixBIOS and AwardBIOS.

A new name is on its way, but MozillaZine is currently running a poll with some of the… less popular names as options. I’m sure Kim and Firda wouldn’t mind using a browser called ‘Duck’, and who can resist surfing the web in ‘Fred’?

This, by the way, is the 400th entry since I started using Movable Type in September. And the next person to comment on this will have made the 300th comment 🙂
