Phoenix 0.4 is available for your surfing pleasure.
October 2002 Archives
I'm going to be out of touch for a few days. I'm recovering from a minor surgery and hope to be back up to speed in time for 1.2. Don't expect much from me here for at least a week. To hold all you Phoenix fans over 'till my return, check out the new Phoenix themes at mozdev and if you like the Phoenix search field but google alone isn't enough for you then go to mycroft.mozdev.org and install 150 or so additional search sites into your Phoenix search field (click the "show entire list" button to get the big list).
Contrary to what a usability weenie might suggest, some developers with experience making software products are capable of thinking intelligently about usability and UI design issues.
If you're a mozdev developer (or any Mozilla add-on developer) then you should check out hyatt's simple doc on making your extensions work with both Mozilla and Phoenix.
For those install-challenged folks who just like to look at the pretty pictures:
- Phoenix is clean and simple.
- With a new and improved sidebar
- But we know you love to customize
- So have it your way
- Or have it his way
- Or my way :)
Phoenix gives you the power to easily and quickly customize your buttons and your toolbars. And with 0.2 we make it even easier to customze with add-ons and extensions .
Oh Dot Two
You've been waiting for months, well, weeks, um, actually, about a week. And it's finally here! Phoenix 0.2 brings lots of great new features and it's smaller and faster. If you haven't seen Joe Hewitt's Phoenix extension, mozEngineer, then you should head right over to http://www.joehewitt.com/mozilla/mozengineer and install this very cool set of tools. Joe's mozEngineer Phoenix extension includes a Bugzilla bug look-up field, an LXR search field, and the DOM Inspector. Not only that, but it takes advantage of the new Phoenix extensions management functionality so it can be disabled and enabled in the Themes and Extensions pref panel. And if you need more tools, check out the the Phoenix Preferences Bar extension and the Phoenix Mouse Gestures add-on available at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/phoenix/extensions/.
