Actually, that's part of it. The big reason they thought it'd get confused was they had a browser embedded in the BIOS they were testing at that point, thereby making them in the same "market" and had to defend it. Phoenix the BIOS manufacturer had a pretty cool embedded thing going. Since it wasn't exactly publicized, I doubt any of the FF crew knew about it when choosing their name.

It was nice that, for a change, there wasn't much ruckus about the whole "it's my name" deal.
