I hope the following facts about Mozilla FireFox which I came across while surfing Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox) will be useful to those who are often on their way to computer quizes.

Interestingly, I found that Mozilla Firefox got its 100 millionth download just after 344 days of its release. Firefox, in its earlier stages of development, was named as “Phoenix”, then “Firebird”, and then finally Mozilla Firefox. Mozilla was forced to change the name everytime due to trademark issues.

People wishing to know more can either visit Wikipedia’s Page on Firefox, or visit the Mozilla’s Website on Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/firefox)

    Because Mozilla had to change the name so frequently, it spawned a Firefox extension called ‘Firesomething’, which adds a different animal’s name after ‘Fire’. You can still download it from the Mozilla website.
