binaries for public testing appeared in September 2002 under the name Phoenix.

The Phoenix name was kept until April 14, 2003, when it was changed because of a trademark dispute with the BIOS manufacturer, Phoenix Technologies (which produces a BIOS-based browser called Phoenix FirstWare Connect).

 

The new name, Firebird, met with mixed reactions, particularly as the Firebird database server already carried the name. In response, the Mozilla Foundation stated that the browser should always bear the name Mozilla Firebird to avoid confusion with the database software.

 

Continuing pressure from the Firebird community forced another change,[1] and on February 9, 2004 the project was renamed Mozilla Firefox (or Firefox for short).[2]

The name "Firefox" (a reference to the red panda)[3] was chosen for its similarity to "Firebird", but also for its uniqueness in the computing industry. To ensure that no further name changes would be necessary, the Mozilla Foundation began the process of registering Firefox[4] as a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office

やなあ

 

情報を整理してみようか

・200209** Phoenixと名付けられたが Phoenix Technologie社製Phoenix FirstWare ConnectというBIOS-based browserと被り訴えてやりゅ!と言われた

・20030414 Firebirdに変更したがFirebird database serverと被った

・20040209 Mozilla Firefox命名された

 

firefoxってレッドフォックス=レッサーパンダの事だったんだ。へー

ももともとphoenixfirebirdからパンダ要素より炎要素の方が強く、レッサーパンダ要素はとりあえずおまけ的なダブルミーニングじゃね

ま、雑といえば雑かもしれない
