Taking this just a bit further, I understand the reasoning behind
debranding the core apps. GNOME is the brand, and it just comes
with all this awesome stuff built in. But I do think it's going
to make it harder for people to use Google as a support tool.

So I entered "firefox problem" into Google to see its autocomplete
suggestions, then s/firefox/gnome web/. Are these search phrases
likely to produce helpful results?

"gnome web problem loading page"
"gnome web problem with facebook"
"gnome web problem with flash"

Just something to chew on.
