Phoenix 0.2

Sorry, I'm a bit late on this one, but still.... :D

Phoenix is a redesign of the Mozilla browser component, similar to Galeon, K-Meleon and Chimera, but written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform. More information about Phoenix is available at the Phoenix Project Page.

A few of the features new to this release include:

  • Web form auto-complete

  • Sidebar is back

    o Downloads Sidebar

    o Bookmarks Sidebar

    o History Sidebar

  • Extension management

  • Toolbar customization

  • Search bar

  • Prefs

  • Speed

  • Ctrl+Mousewheel to resize fonts

  • Bug fixes
Some people seem concerned that we're just adding feature after feature without fixing bugs. While it's true that we're doing a lot of heavy lifting, redesign and feature work, the time is right -- we're at the beginning of our development cycle. As we progress, you'll see the larger work taper off and bug fixing become a higher priority. Still, we continue to fix bugs as we go.
