Mozilla folks released "Mozilla Branding".It looks like from now on Phoenix/Firebird should be called "Mozilla Browser" and Minotour/Thunderbird "Mozilla Mail" respectively.I guess they got tired of name debate so Firebird/Thunderbird combo is just a code name.The entire article you can find on Mozilla:http://www.mozilla.o...p/branding.htmlAnd there is some discussion ongoing on Slashdot about it:http://slashdot.org/...8205.shtml?tid=

After reading the page I think this is a logical step. We all know it's Mozilla, and so does the world. Capitalize on the brand.

'freedom...is actually the reason that men live together in political organisations at all. Without it, political life as such would be meaningless. The raison d'Être of politics is freedom, and its field of experience is action'.

It makes perfect sense.  Phoenix was a splinter group off of the orginal Mozilla project that made a faster browser.  Mozilla finally gave up on Gecko and adopted Phoenix which brought them back into the fold.
