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.

You're still confused... but now I see that you don't really understand what the Mozilla framework really is. It's not the browser at all -- it can be used to write all kinds of non-browser software. The browser called Mozilla is one application that is built with the Mozilla framework.

It is confusing, because the term "Mozilla" is used to describe two different things. Read further through that link I gave you, and you'll see what I'm talking about. There's a whole book about creating applications with Mozilla, and at least up to chapter three, there is no browser described at all!
