Phoenix Phrolix

Been using Phoenix for most of today, and while I’m generally impressed, it has crashed twice; not something I was hoping for. These crashes occurred when clicking on links which opened new windows – the window would open, then the application would stop responding and Windows would then declare that the program has caused an illegal operation.
I haven’t noticed any real speed increase, but its smaller system footprint is nice. It’s just a shame that you have to reset all of your settings before installing it as a precaution.
In other Gecko news, Netscape have released Netscape 7.01. This finally includes a popup stopper (something Mozilla/Phoenix users have had for a while), and I hope that this will be a ‘killer feature’ that will encourage people to switch to it. Go on, ditch IE. You know you want to.
