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."

Awesome... this thing rocks.... BUT: I have a huge amount of questions, but only a few I will mention.

First off, how much time of"Mozilla" development is this taking away from the core? Secondly, why not implement; Satchel, Plug-in and Add-on Manager, and Download Manager to MOZILLA's core and not only Phoenix, I would hate to see Phoenix have better "features" than mozilla, (mabey - the costomize toolbars until later [I'd feel bad for skin developers]), while Phoenix should be a BROWSER onlt version of Moz? I though that was the point? Even if I am correct, I don't see why improving on those 3 mentioned features in Phoenix and not implementing them to Moz would be productive to the community. While Phoenix rocks, and is good for those looking for a SOLE BROWSER, I think most of the Moz community would like to see the main trunk sport these improvments/features.. Just my lame 2 cents. cheers.... and AWESOME work with Phoenix (I honestly love it)
