That'd be Netscape. You don't see it on the Unix version, but they make
a great deal of the whole "Navigator" motif, using lighthouses, rigging,
and that big wheel thingy they have on ships. Check out the box for
Netscape at your favorite retail store--it's got a big lighthouse on the
front. The icon for Netscape on a Mac is (I think) a lighthouse.
And idea just struck me as I was writing this; if the bee motif were
used, the official logo could be a queen bee, and the unofficial could
be a worker bee. I'm not sure how these two types of bee look different
though; maybe the queen bee could be surrounded by lots of worker bees
