The name has been used in a number of ways and in combination with other phrases, though all of them have been related to the now-defunct Netscape Communications Corporation and its related application software.
Only three things have ever formally used the term "Mozilla" alone:
* the codename for the Netscape Navigator software project
* the official name of what was re-named Mozilla Application Suite
* the Mascot of Netscape.
The various other related uses of the term "Mozilla" are listed below in the order when they were first used.
Historically, Mozilla had been used internally as a codename for the Netscape Navigator web browser from its beginning. Jamie Zawinski came up with the name during a meeting while working at the company. The name was created as a contraction of the words "Mosaic killer", hinting that Netscape would be the end to the (then only) competitor browser, Mosaic. The logo was a reference to the name of the classic fictional monster Godzilla.
