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!"

Yeah, I noticed that this weekend too -- I nearly fell off my chair. The future is now! I'm sure glad somebody finally had the horse sense to do a 'worse-is-better' implementation of this feature (Activate a link, change its color. Simple and expected) instead of what's been proposed for bugs 10491 and 78510. Those bugs could sit in limbo for another 3 years.

I guess that's what Phoenix is about. (sanity?)

Still, it only seems to work for middle-clicks, so I guess the future isn't quite here yet.

Some other Phoenix 'features' I noticed: - Ctrl-Q doesn't close all browser windows - If you type words into the location bar you get a google search, not an "invalid URL" error message.
