Phoenix 0.4 (Oceano) Released

Phoenix 0.4 builds have arrived. You can get builds for Windows and Linux from FTP but you're encouraged to read the release notes first.

While there are a few new features to this release, like the return of type ahead find and IE-style www.<foo>.com autocomplete, most of the changes have been improvements to existing features like toolbar customization, tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking and keyboard shortcuts. Also new with this release are a handful of Phoenix themes available at the Phoenix Themes section of

Grab 0.4 and let the Phoenix team know what you think here and at the Phoenix discussion forums.

You've done a bang up job. Here are the nice touches I simply love vs Mozilla:

1. I can finally move the URL textbox on the menu like in IE. Now I have 2 lines (menu/url bar and navigation/personal toolbar). Real estate has been set free.

2. You can finally middle click on the bookmark and have it open in another tab.

3. Replace tabs instead of append.

Ok now questions and suggestions.

1. You gotta have the turbo option. It is simply a must on lower-end machines. It will net you a lot more testers.

2. Is the Classic and Modern theme supposed to be the same exact thing? Or is it just on my PC?
