What design won the design contest?

I haven't seen anything in the announcements.
Imagine if God created a creature that was bipedal, soft and cuddly, stood about 9 inches tall and sang. Then called him Gizmo.

Final choice was Basilisk. Popular vote went to Moonfinder but the name was an issue.

Actually I did forgot all about this one. I liked the one of Moonfinder but well legal stuff is a snake of 100 heads. So I have a question, we need to use this one behind/with Pale Moon? or this is another beast for different users?

...? I don't understand your question.
Basilisk and Pale Moon are different applications.

Well that answer partially my question. I thought that they would overlap in some moment or else.

Pale Moon uses the current hybrid platform we use. Basilisk will use UXP as a platform.
Pale Moon will have the classic interface, Basilisk will have the Australis interface.
Pale Moon will focus on users desiring a very high degree of configurability of their browser.
Basilisk will focus on being a replacement of (pre-Servo) Firefox, with support for NPAPI plugins, unsigned extensions, and with some (very) long-standing Mozilla bugs fixed.
Pale Moon will see active front-end/application development. Basilisk will see little front-end development since it will be catering to platform development instead.
Pale Moon and Basilisk are two different applications. Even if Pale Moon switches to UXP in the future, they will still be two different applications.
