[ L ] Из одной бессмертной птицы — другая, огненная // phoenix

Разработчики Phoenix — легковесного варианта Мозиллы, решили переименоваться, переименовались, и теперь проект из „Феникса“ првератился в „Жар-птицу“. Шило на мыло, конечно, но чего только не сделаешь из-за пересечений с именами ради того, чтобы всё в конце концов было хорошо и беззаботно...


Phoenix needs to be renamed
The Phoenix project will soon be renamed because of legal issues. After many months and several hundred suggestions, Phoenix's new name has been chosen. It will be revealed shortly, after some final legal checks have been made.



New Name: Firebird
After months of discussion and further months of legal investigation, we're finally comfortable moving forward with new names. The new name for the Phoenix browser is "Firebird". The documentation and product strings will be updated soon. In addition to securing Firebird, we've also got the OK from those contributing legal resources to use the name "Thunderbird" for a mail client. Hopefully this will be the end of naming legal issues for a while.
