Phoenix 0.1 Released

Monday September 23rd, 2002

Asa Dotzler writes: "The first Phoenix milestone, 0.1, has been released. Phoenix is a redesign of the Mozilla browser component, similar to Galeon, K-Meleon and Chimera, but written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform. This first Phoenix release includes great new features like a customizable toolbar and quicksearch filtering for bookmarks and history. See the Phoenix release notes for more information or go directly to the builds."

platform-independant UI framework?

That's why on the mac the toolbar isn't attached to the window, and shortcut keys are different, and Mozilla inherits the Operating System's look and feel in classic?

Mozilla once had the intention of being the same everywhere. It simply didn't turn out that way. Users want their app to behave like all the other apps on their machine. Users don't care what a given app looks or behaves like on someone else's machine. Joseph Elwell.
