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."

#9 Bloat?

Pnoenix already seems to be getting too bloated. Wasn't the goal to develop a browser without all the bloat of Moz? Does anyone actually use the Sidebar, download manager, add-ons, bookmark manager, toolbar, etc? I know I sure don't. If they could keep the feature-set under control, we might get a browser that could be utilized by AOL.
