On Branding RoyTam1's Browsers

Recommended Posts

I don't wish to get everyone riled up yet again over all this, but I have some thoughts on the matter that might be worth considering....

These names might have been suggested already (too lazy to look), but what about something like Retro Moon (for the PM27/PM28XP builds), RetroFox (for FF45ESR, Basilisk 55 and so on), and RetroZilla XP Browser/RetroZilla XP Mail (for the SeaMonkey-derived Borealis Navigator and Interlink Mail & News, respectively)?

There already exists the Mozilla-derived RetroZilla for Windows 9x, so why not continue with that branding scheme for these other inter-related, 2000 and XP compatible browsers?

As for icons, I'm OK with whatever anyone comes up with, but maybe someone can come up with something IE-like, to continue yet further on this "Retro" theme?  Of course, for the Retrozilla XP-branded things, some derivative of the old Mozilla icon would probably be appropriate (or something like a modernized, more XP-era like version of the Retrozilla icon, maybe).

Over on the poll, I just cast my vote for New Moon...  only because, to my ear, it was the most euphonious one in the selection.

I'm here too late :D, but I prefer a name that's melodious and rolls off the tongue...     like 'Moon Shadow' for NM28...   'Little Star' for basilisk

'Navigator' as 'Neptune Navigator' just sounds perfect IMO. Reminds me of Netscape, Neps, and it rolls off the tongue very nicely.

I love the Neptune Navigator name!

Especially since mine already looks and works like Netscape, and it's the name of a program which was never released to the mainstream  :)
