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."

The memory size and speed of Phoenix will be exactly the same as that of Mozilla since they both use the same engine to render content and UI. Phoenix is just a UI specification.

(Anyway, Mozilla will usually be between 8-12 MB at startup, so I don't think you're reading the memory size correctly - use 'Private Bytes' instead of 'Working Set' in PerfMon.exe, or 'VM Size' instead of 'Mem Usage' in TaskMgr.exe)
