my favorite web browser

I've grow quite frond of phoenix later

It's faster than even IE and has some snazzy features like a built in popup killer

there are binaries for both windows and linux (some source tarballs would be nice on the linux end but oh well)

I encourage people to give it a try

i like phoenix, but version 0.4 for windows is the best if you are using it on a windows machine (which i have to do at work) version 0.5 really sucks, sorry. also i think i am using 0.4 or 0.5 on linux and they are rock solid and kick arse. plus all the flash plugins et c work, no working skins support and so on yet though, and i can't get the prefbar to work in linux either...

I get my HD back today so I'll get the linux version again

the version I have has a considerably bigger memory footprint than IE but I think it's 0.5 so maybe that's why
