Mozilla Firebird is redesign of the Mozilla browser, component similar to Galeon, K-Meleon and Caminoâ„¢, but written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform.

    Mosaic ended in special ways into Internet Explorer.
    Everyone knows about that, and about Safari’s fine heritage.

    Yes: Internet Explorer comes from ‘Spyglass’, which was the commercial version of Mosaic. If you open the About box in Explorer 6, you’ll still see the references to the old browser (I’m curious if MS has removed those references in the IE7 browser). I made a timeline once.

    As for Firebird: If I’m not wrong (as my timeline suggests), Firebird 0.7, was actually the last version called that way and was then rebranded into Firefox (that is, unless Mozilla.org still has developers maintaining that version).
