Firebird is only an internal name

We have been assured by Mozilla that FIREBIRD is only an internal name for the NEW Mozilla Browser.
Once this project is integrated back into the suite FIREBIRD (The Browser) will cease to exist.
It should not be marketed as a product and should be removed from this poll.
You will find the REAL Firebird on the Database List where it belongs !

Mozilla Firebird, as mostly of then is based on gecko so html rendering is allways the same. But this one don't came with a email or a composer tool (I use mutt) this way I can have installed the tools that I just use.

Also the tabs are nice ;-)

I voted for konqueror. I would have voted for firebird, but Im pissed off at them for stepping on the Firebird database project name.

Opera for me. I absolutely hate konquerer in so many ways....I'm suprised so many voted for it.
I will check out firebird soon enough (Note: I don't care if that's the right name or not :-P)
