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.

#2 The bloat myth

Interesting, another one mixing up features with, I cite: "junk". I am sick and tired really of people doing this. If they do not like more than very basic features, fine. Phoenix will give them that and everybody is happy. No need though to bash Mozilla for what makes it the preferred browser for many other users: its advanced features and configurability. Many people prefer Mozilla because it has the other apps (Mail, IRC, calender) included or addable, because it has *many* more useful features and because empowers them to do the things they want more efficiently. I have never seen a Mozilla user bash Phoenix for its lack of features and flexibilty, why do Phoenix aficionados insist on bashing Mozilla and calling those features they might not need or understand "junk" or "bloat"?
