So what name/s are the developers leaning towards?

There are tons in the name thread.

Is the browser formerly known as phoenix going to have a default UI change as well or is that for a later milestone?

I second that. I love the name 'Phoenix' and don't see anything remotely wrong or inappropriate about it. What's prompting the name change?

Dai :(

Don't cave in to tose guys. With so many SOFTWARE sites out there with the Phoenix name, Phoenix Technologies has no broad claim to the name.

Let's keep it.

There's already a thread for discussing the name.

http://www.mozillazine.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=291

I didn't see anything in Blake's message that said something about a new name in this thread.

Having a fairly uncommon first name, I sure wouldn't want people to judge me by my name. I'd still like my favourite browser to have a good name that fits its functionality well. 'Phoenix' really sounds excellent...

I think the name is great but... if they change it they change it... not much that we can really do about that...
