you learn something new every day

Watched this video this morning and noticed this comment below:

Did you know? The logo for Mozilla Firefox actually a Red Panda, rather than a Fox.

Did a bit of googling, and found out that ‘firefox’ is another name for the red panda, and was chosen by Mozilla for its similarity to Firebird, the original name of their browser. But then, you say…… its logo does really look like a fox, with its longish snout, colouring and all! Daniel Burka, the designer who conceptualized the logo, tweeted in 2009 that it was ‘partially inspired by this illustration in my childhood bible’. So I guess it’s a red panda made to look like a fox!
