Here is a bunch of likely candidates. Remember that any poll we do is not binding on the developers, who will pick the name they think best. This is really for us.

Also, there is a limit on the number of options, so I had to leave out about half of those I thought interesting.

NOTE--PX shows up twice because of something wrong with the editor (a pun, if you will). Just vote for the first instance.

Firebird is good. That's one of the early names I think we tossed around. But you left off "none of the above" from the poll.

Perhaps someone should start another poll with completely different choices and then the winner from both(or more if necessary) will go into a final poll. Make sure each has a "none of the above" option.

Thanks for the comments: Athena is off, and None Of These is on (before many votes accrued).

no one wants a browser called "Wyvern", so replace that with Px, Mozqito or Guerilla :D:D

How on earth is "Wyvern" a likely candidate?

I would have voted for Raptor. :)
But I guess there are copyright issues with that name too.

Thanks. I forgot about that.

Replacing it. Also replacing Wyvern with Mozquito (Mozquito was on the first draft).

I have to say most of those names are pretty bad. I don't think the average user would relate to any of them for web browsing. I do think Firebird is fine since its in the same vein as Phoenix, but the rest really don't seem like they even have a remote chance of being used.

Fudge...

I added Mozquito to my poll because this one didnt have it.

Also, why are there two Zephry options?
