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.

I have to agree. I've replaced mozilla 1.2.1 with it since monday. There's a few performance issues though. The sidebar feels sluggish on my slow workstation at work (400 mhz pII) and the preference dialog is really slow when closing it (even on my amd xp 2200+ at home). Other than that, it does everything I need it to do. I do miss the mozilla style custom sidebars though. It would be nice if those could be added (only lose the tabbed interface mozilla uses).
