ExtremeTech Preview of Phoenix

Monday December 30th, 2002

ExtremeTech has a glowing preview of Phoenix. The article, which appears to be based on the 0.5 release, highlights Phoenix's small size and uncluttered interface. Tabbed browsing, multiple home pages and the search bar are discussed as well. They also included a screenshot of MozillaZine, which makes us like this review even more.

Thanks to the_village_treky for the news.

Phoenix is faster because its XUL is written much more efficiently than that of Mozilla. It's really that simple. I guess this is a point we didn't explain well enough, because I often see Mozilla users try to claim that Phoenix is only faster because it's "missing features", and that a browser-only install of Mozilla is just as fast. This is completely incorrect. Mozilla's XUL is an absolute mess and that slows it down considerably.
