2<title>Introduction to <application>Mozilla</application></title>
3
4<para><application>Mozilla</application> is a browser suite, the Open Source
5sibling of <application>Netscape</application>. It includes the browser,
6composer, mail client, a calendar client and an <acronym>IRC</acronym> client.</para>
7
8<para>The Mozilla project also hosts two subprojects that aim to cater to the needs
9of users who don't need the complete browser suite or like to have seperate applications
10for browsing and e-mail. These subprojects are
11<ulink url="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firebird/">Mozilla Firebird</ulink>,
12(a stand-alone browser based on the Mozilla source code) and
13<ulink url="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/">Mozilla Thunderbird</ulink>,
14(a stand-alone mail client based on the Mozilla source code). The build instructions
15for these two applications are discussed in this section instead of having a
16seperate section since the build instructions are very similar to those for
17<application>Mozilla</application>. In addition, because of the similarity,
18only the changes required with respect to
19the <application>Mozilla</application> instructions are mentioned.
20The source for these
21projects can be downloaded from their homepages mentioned above. Note that it is
22not possible to interchange the source, that is <application>Mozilla Firebird</application>
23or <application>Mozilla Thunderbird</application> cannot be built from
24<application>Mozilla</application> source code.</para>
