    Phoenix Questions

    OK, so I've downloaded the much admired Phoenix browser (Moz's baby cousin), and am quite impressed. Slick, quick, etc etc. However, a couple of q's.

    1: It seems to have some issued with rollover javascript - is this the norm?

    2: Can I have my mouse gestures back, or are they not to play?

    3: I don't have "pop-up" control, but it did block one - is this just the new way of doing things?

    4: Skinning. I like the skin it's come with (similar to orbital), but is this changeable?

    Well, that's it for now - help and views welcome

    Not that I noticed.

    I think you can get them from mozdev.org.
    3: I don't have "pop-up" control, but it did block one - is this just the new way of doing things?
    Go into "Tools -> Preferences" to block or un-block pop-ups.
    4: Skinning. I like the skin it's come with (similar to orbital), but is this changeable?
    Again look at themes.mozdev.org.

    you can get extensions guaranteed to work with phoenix (3 at the moment, including mouse gestures) at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/phoenix/extensions/

    my only problem with the gestures is that they opted to use the left mouse button for the gestures, and not the right one. this has obvious issues when you're trying to highlight text quickly, as you usually end up accidentally triggering a gesture...

    Cheers guys.

    That page was great Redux, nice one-stop-shop . You're right about the left button mouse gestures being annoying, I take it you've found no way of changing it? (as you can with Moz..)

    Phoenix hasn't even got to 1.0 yet, I'd expect it to be a little rough .
