There's more. One error (at least!) in the following. There *is* an
about:1994 page.

Now we know what these folks do in their spare time. (Not anagrams!)

Netscape:

You can get Mozilla to show up in the Netscape icon by going to the URL

about:mozilla

You'll get a page with a quotation from the Book of Mozilla, and, on all
subsequent pages, instead of showing the meteor shower in the Netscape
logo icon as a progress indicator, Mozilla will rise up and breathe fire.

Also, if, before you go to

about:mozilla

you go to:

http://home.netscape.com/people/jwz/

which is Jamie Zawinski's home page - the Netscape logo icon will be
replaced by a compass.
