Phoenix 0.3 Coming Soon

Friday October 11th, 2002

Blake Ross writes in with information on the upcoming Phoenix release: "Please bang on the current Phoenix nightlies and help us shake out any last minute bugs. We hope to release Phoenix 0.3 as soon as Monday and need as many eyes on the builds as possible. Areas that could use some real hammering on include bookmarks and the bookmarks toolbar, pop-up controls, toolbar customization, autocomplete and tabbed browsing. Thanks!"

Also has anyone considered that Mozilla had to be done before Phoenix (ie. a lightweight browser) could even be considered. Netscape (AOL?) would probably never have bankrolled a simple browser - there are lots of those. Now a brand new complete development environment which happens to include a browser is an entirely different matter. Mozilla will be the base for many internet technologies (Galeon, EOne, Chimera, etc.) of which Phoenix is only one. Thinking of Mozilla as a browser does it a disservice. That said I don't use it anymore - Phoenix is just too good.
