Phoenix 0.3 Released

Monday October 14th, 2002

The Phoenix Team today released the third milestone, "Lucia", to the world. The new release features a new popup blocking whitelist, image blocking, the return of the 'Go' menu, a slew of bookmarks and tab browser changes, and other minor bugfixes. This release of Phoenix is actually smaller and faster than Phoenix 0.2 was.

You can grab the release of 0.3 from or from the Phoenix Release Notes. [Builds are slowly moving out to the ftp servers. If you don't see them, wait a little bit and try again.]

As far as the yet unnamed Phoenix 0.4 goes, the team plans to add back 4.x style bookmarks search, fix sidebar persistence issues, and work on polish.

Phoenix just keeps getting better and better at a rate that is making me dizzy. It's faster, and the new tabs/bookmarks will save me a ton of time. The only nit-pick is that preferences has been moved to the Tools menu, and I still have to go look for it (I use quickprefs most of the time though). The new pop-up blocking inquiry box seems like a good idea but I'll reserve judgement on that. Since I've started using a separate mail client (Balsa) I haven't even opened Mozilla. To think there are 6 (?) more milestones until 1.0 boggles the mind. Just how good can this thing get? Way to go guys!!!
