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 very nice. I'm still using the 0.5 release.

You asked, so here are some features that Phoenix should have that Mozilla has: Password Manager, ability to clear location bar history, ability to show only autocomplete matches I type, ability to remove download manager entries from downloads.rdf, help files, option to disable form manager, compare page in cache to page on network only once per session, and HTTP pipelining.

Assuming that users will figure out how to do any of these with user.js is not consistent with aiming for a user base of non-experts. There needs to be UI for more preferences.

And Talkback agent. Phoenix is really stable, but it's frustrating the 2 or 3 times it's crashed because I feel like I can't do anything to help find that bug.
