the purpose/market of the Firebird product isn't very clear to me. My suggestion is that you put together a feature comparison chart for the different products so a casual user can easily identify which product is right for them. Here is an example of what I am thinking about http://www.quicken.com/quickensw/sidexside/ This lets the customer decide which product meets their needs. Thanks for all of your hard work. J.R.

-> me I'll make a draft of this.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Created attachment 134338 [details] draft of product comparison page Images are needed for yes, no, n/a and maybe. After creating this, it occured to me that the Firebird project created something similar at the time of the 0.7 release, but it was taken down. See bug 222294. Features shown in that list should be included in this. Also note that I know next to nothing about Camino. I just didn't say whether Camino had a feature or not.
we could pick off some hightlights from http://www.xulplanet.com/ndeakin/arts/reasons.html and we should add some things for all, firebird and tbird and seamonkey.. all, cross platform support... languages international versions supported most secure internet client solution firebird/tbird smallest/fastest download and browser install smallest/fastest download and mail client install most advanced and streamlined user interface seamonkey reduces training and migration costs for users and and organizations familiar with Netscape 4.x-7.1 Multi-profile support Built in IRC Chat Client
Comparison chart is useless. You can manipulate the data to say whatever you want to say. For example: Mozilla Firebird Thunderbird Streamlined Interface N Y Y Customized Toolbar N Y Y Integrated Search Y Y Bookmark Panels N Y Custom Keywords Y Y : Downlaod Size large small small Installer y n n Net installer y n n Note Mozilla clearly looses because the way you order things. But if you list browser-mail integration first, and emphasize on Net installer (so that download size doesn't matter), then Mozilla is the clear winner. I don't like comparison chart because 1) I prefer Mozilla and I think Firebird fans have been overrepresented 2) they are more for marketing and don't help users make the right choices Over to marketing due to obvious manipulating nature of this bug

If someone more familiar with CVS can find the Firebird product comparison I think it would be a better place to start.
I believe this is solved by the mozillaZine Knowledge Base: <http://kb.mozillazine.org/>. If you agree, close this bug.
KB version needs some work but hopefully it will happen => FIXED

http://kb.mozillazine.org/ looks good at quick glance; might need a a bit more detail... we need to do a detailed review, and then maybe figrure out how to link in to some home page and product page places that make sense... "what's the diff erence between all these things is still a big email@example.com question...
