Firefox 4 Code Name: Tumucumaque

Mozilla’s tradition is code naming Firefox major releases after national parks from around the world, and, since recently, Thunderbird major releases after beaches. The latter we have seen with the first development release of Thunderbird 3.3 code named Miramar. For whatever reason there has not been much use of the code name for Firefox 4, especially given we are nearing the release of Beta 8. Percy at Mozilla Links did a little digging and found the code name for Firefox 4 is Tumucumaque, borrowed from the Tumucumaque Mountain National Park in Northwest Brazil.

    Firefox 4 está muito legal. E o mais legal foi a homenagem com o nome do “Tumucumaque”, que é o Parque Nacional Montanhas do Tumucumaque. A Mozilla Firefox nos impressiona cada vez mais, Parabéns. [Firefox 4 is pretty cool. And the coolest was the tribute to the name of “Tumucumaque, ” which is the Tumucumaque Mountains National Park. Mozilla Firefox impresses us more and more, Congratulations.]
