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.

also, IE renders stuff INCORRECTLY. It's just that people are dumb enough to code for these imperfections when they could just code with standardized code and have it work the same in both browsers....
