Reports of Phoenix's Death Greatly Exaggerated

Monday January 20th, 2003

Recently, there has been speculation that Phoenix has died. Not so. In a message to the Phoenix General forum, developer Pierre "pch" Chanial has announced that Phoenix is still alive. While pch won't be able to work on Phoenix for at least a month, Mozilla veterans Dean Tessman, Peter "jag" Annema and Jan Varga have all been given CVS access. A 0.6 release is under development.


#14 Makes no sense

"A MacOS port of Phoenix is unnecessary given Chimera."

I have heard this multiple times, but it never has made any sense.

For some reason people accept the fact that there is a legitimate reason to develop Phoenix for the Windows and Linux platforms, despite the fact that there are dozens of other browsers already available for those platforms. However for some reason the existance of a single browser on the Mac platform - Chimera - somehow negates every reason for Phoenix to be developed for OS X.

Can anyone show the logic behind this argument?
