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.

'Well, witnessing the stampede to Chimera and Safari, I'd say Mac users have voted overwhelmingly against the "kind of functionality provided by Phoenix" you speak of.'

What a moronic thing to say.

Mac users choosing Chimera or Safari has absolutely no bearing on whether or not Mac users want a browser with flexible modular extensibility like Phoenix has. Mac users are not even being given the opportunity to "vote" for Phoenix extensions.

The fact that many OS X users have downloaded an unofficial and unsupported compilation of Phoenix for OS X proves that there is an interest in such a browser. If there were an officially supported version then I guarantee that there would be signifigantly more people interested.
