Mozilla Firebird 0.6 Has Been Released!


The browser formerly known as Phoenix has been released under its new name Mozilla Firebird. There are some bugs with it though. You can get it at www.mozilla.org . What do you think about it?

Happy browsing!

Chris I could not agree more. Mozilla is so bulky and un-necessary but these cut back versions of Mozilla look promising. One day they will get there.

i've been trying it recently, as i'm not at all keen on galeon2, which is such a shame as galeon is so so good. the gtk2 conversion really isn't working right now i'd say... so currently phoenix is my main browser...

i couldn't get phoenix to run on my redhat 6.2. i wanted
it so bad i got whole mozilla cvs tree, and built it.
it took a dozen builds before i got one that worked at all.
it still crashes so i don't use it.
i think it strange that i can download mozilla builds from
mozilla.org and they work, but the phoenix builds were
linked against a newer glibc.
