Probably more. I was using this browser back when it was still called "Mozilla Browser" in the early '00s.


It was actually called "Phoenix" when first released as a trimmed-down version of the browser from Mozilla Suite (which also contained email, web editor, and IRC client, and is now SeaMonkey). That name sparked copyright claims so it was changed to Firebird which raised the ire of Firebird database project. Mozilla Firebird became Mozilla Firefox on February 9, 2004.

I used Phoenix pretty much from its inception too. 😉😎

Hmm... nah. That's not correct. The initial browser I'm talking about using was long before "Firefox" came about. Its current iteration is actually Seamonkey, but back in 2000, it was just Mozilla Browser with the dinosaur icon. They're calling it "Navigator" on the Wikipedia page, but it was not called that. Navigator was its ancestor, but the Mozilla Browser was called "Mozilla Browser" back in 2000.


But, of course, old folks' memories are not always very accurate.


Mozilla Application Suite


The Mozilla Suite was composed of several main programs: Navigator (a Web browser), Communicator (Mozilla Mail & Newsgroups), a Web page developer (Mozilla Composer), an IRC client (ChatZilla) and an electronic address book

What's not correct? You were using Mozilla Browser from Mozilla Suite. Phoenix, which eventually was renamed Firefox, was spun off from Mozilla Browser. That's what I said. I also used Mozilla Suite before Phoenix was spun off and released.
