opensource proponents always have to resort to some sort of derogatory

compliment, and "ice" never has any positive connotations either.  It's
rally childish.

Talking about names -- taking into account the wildly annoying memory
leaks in what is known as Firefox, I would rather rename it to Bulimic
Fish (as in this sad story:
http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk/pfk/pages/item.php?news=1040 ).
Should go well together with Seamonkey.

Wish the Firefox team fixed the leaks instead of quarreling with the
GNU purists... :(

With best regards,
