Ok!! I get the picture ;-) ... Branding applications are a bad idea. I
was just a little taken away by the splash screen concept for mozilla
based applications :-)

None the less I kinda like the default splash screens for only one
reason - when I launch the Firefox / Thunderbird applications, all I see
is a window-list element stating "Starting firefox.." and no other
visual indication. The splash screen gives me the 'feel' that the
application is loading up and makes me feel happy that the application
loads up in snap.... well that is just my view about it.

I totally agree with Jeff too - that branding the applications would
make it harder for alternate spins.

later,
Rogue
