Phoenix 0.2 Release Set for Tomorrow

Monday September 30th, 2002

Blake Ross writes: "The Phoenix team is targeting a 0.2 milestone for tomorrow, October 1st. Please bang on the nightlies. 0.2 will feature a ton of new stuff, including a replacement for Mozilla's Form Manager, a redesigned Sidebar, a redesigned Download Manager (available as a Sidebar panel), improved toolbar customization (you can now add space and flexible space and a bunch of new buttons), an add-on manager, and a new search/find-in-page bar. Importing of bookmarks has been fixed, too."

Before filing bugs, take heed of Blake's advice: "If the issue seems obvious, we probably already know about it! For example, yes — we know that many of the new buttons are missing icons in some or all modes. We are desperately in need of an artist."

Should the moz team be looking at ways to make actual MOZILLA faster? Sure once it gets up and running and the page begins to load its snappy and quick. But there are a lot of other ways where it drags its feet...

For example when you click to load a new URL in IE5.5/6 the page BEGINS to load almost instantly, giving you the feeling of lightness and snappyness. In Mozilla its quick slow to start drawing the next page. Also opening new tabs, going to email, and other things are slow.

It just seems to me all these effort should be concentrated on improving whats already there, applying these things to mozilla itself before starting a whole new project.

again, maybe im seeing this wrong.
