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."

I would like to know the memory footprint of Phoenix 0.1 compared to Beonex Communicator 0.8.1. I am on Windows 98 and when I tried builds 20020915 and 20020920, at times it ran out of memory too fast. I have 128 megs of RAM with a 5.9 ghz hard drive. I have good performance with Beonex 0.8.1 without the mail/news and chat clients, and with the smallish YAMC (957 KB download) as my email client. If, the memory footprint of Phoenix drops below BC (browser and composer only), I would consider switching to Phoenix.
