Phoenix 0.5 Released

Saturday December 7th, 2002

Version 0.5 of Phoenix has been released for Linux and Windows. Amongst other improvements, this version now allows you to set a group of tabs as your home page and open history items in tabs. There's also support for the Back and Forward buttons on the IntelliMouse Explorer and Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000 users will find that the Classic theme now blends in better with the operating system style. Of course, this release is also smaller and faster than ever before.

Check out the Release Notes and then grab a build. Give your feedback in the Phoenix Forums.

0.5 will be the last release to be called Phoenix. Version 0.6, expected in January, will have a new name. And they really mean it this time.


#18 Slower?

Am I the only one who finds Phoenix to actually be slower? Perhaps it's because my laptop doesn't have all that much ram, but this release is completely unusably slow while those in the past have been great.

Am I alone out there?
