On Branding RoyTam1's Browsers

Here are all of the browser names from this thread.

 

I think I've got everything without error. Please correct if necessary. I'm aware that some other suggestions were made in the old browser thread but there's waaaaaaaayyyyyy too many in here.

Frankly I just tend to simply RT-xxxx lately, since that's what we all will keep thinking and remembering anyway. Or how many people will be able to memorize completely different names, and additionally will remember which is based on which, if new names don't even remotely remind the origin? Let alone the rest of the world, completely clueless about such history.
RoyFox/RoyMoon etc. is out, and I agree that feels a bit like too much ego.
"RT" on the other hand feels rather factual, more like a symbol as a real name.

Thanks for the collection, it seems comprehensive.

For now I think there are two feasible voting options:

1. Separate thread with poll for every browser (can create all if needed)

2. simply everyone posting in this thread with their choices (I can count later if needed)

I think all variations of a single base browser ought to use the same name (Like PM 27 vs PM 28 and Serpent 52 vs Serpent 55). You might start by opening just two polls,  one for PM and one for Serpent. Those are the main RT browsers, and most suggestions refer to them only. And to help you some more, I withdraw all my suggestions, except Peach Moonshine and Snake Oil.

For Serpent, I vote a rename to "Paracelsus", renaming New Moon to "Peach Moonshine" (Arctic Fox rename to "Cordelia"), and Borealis Navigator to "Draconis" if possible.

And Mailnews and Interlink? After all, we have some people in here very interested in them ;)

Those are simpler because there were less suggestions... but feel free to start as many polls as you feel like.:yes:

Trying to prepare the topic, I hit the limit of 15 answers per poll. Is this expandable?

Current list for NEWMOON only:

Just voted.

But I think @Mathwiz came up with Moebius (ex-Serpent 55), not Matt Tobin.
