Search on for SeaMonkey Slogans
Friday March 30th, 2007
In a newsgroup message, Robert "KaiRo" Kaiser has requested feedback on possible SeaMonkey slogans. KaiRo is interested in comments on his own proposals as well as original suggestions. Current proposals include "the suite, reborn", "browse. mail. compose. chat." and "suite life".
The search for slogans is part of an effort to ramp up marketing for the SeaMonkey project, which began as a community-driven continuation of the Mozilla Application Suite in 2005. Earlier this month, the United States Patent and Trademark Office published the applications for the SeaMonkey name trademark and SeaMonkey logo trademark for opposition.
I presume that you're aware that the icon is the default favicon installed with what was the old Netscape Enterprise server (I think it's now Sun's iPlanet web server)? I seem to remember smiling at the irony of one big pro-MS site running Netscape server and having that favicon a while ago :)
There's actually quite a few websites of the government variety (both US and international) running it (as seen by the icons) mainly I guess because government contracts tend to favour big companies with proper hardware and software support contracts (such as Sun), and this often wins over the commodity server/open source combo (such as Dell/Linux/Apache) in that space.
