Firebird, as Flii put well, is a natural progression from Phoenix. Besides, the name still implies it will never die, which is a good thing for a product. For Valkyrie, I like the sound of it, and I am a big Macross fan. ;)


Valkyrie is cool. The best for me. :)

I like Naples and Oceano too.

I am verry sorry but i must say none of the names really work for me.
The name has to be one that is recognised by the masses as a browser. See the filosophy behind the explorer and navigator names. That is why i came up with the name

Compass or Kompas

whatever you want to spell it (english or dutch).

The name fits in the row:
explorer , navigator, compass

And every explorer and navigator has a compass to guide them :LOL:

Fusion is a good name, but that's what both Allaire and NetObjects thought, too.

Thanks for agreeing! :) Firebird also reminds me of this Japanese anime cartoon called "Gatcha Man." ;)

I'm gonna have to come cast my two cents AGAINST two of the more popular names here.

1) Firebird IS a terribly bland and generic and uninspired name. Please God don't let it win.
2) Sphinx does sound like sphincter. Wayne's World, anybody???

If "Firebird" is so bland and generic, what makes "Phoenix" not so? I agree it's not the fanciest name in the world, but I contend it's not nearly as bad as you make it sound.

Sphinx sounds rather inert to me....not exactly what you'd like a browser to express.
Fusion? Of what? Succesfull or not?

Someone mentioned "Lynx" in his list. It does sound cool, except there's already a browser called Lynx... ;)
