In reply to rjek/lym:

Well, despite the age Phoenix does pretty well and does have JavaScript (old, but it has) so that there are pages where it beats NetSurf. But I agree that it would be best that only one browser is worked upon to bundle the efforts. Currently both, Phoenix and Netsurf have their merits...

As for Firefox: I didn't write it off but just wrote that the word 'active' is overdoing the current progress.

But both rjek any lym suggest to not put effort into Phoenix but to concentrate on NetSurf. Well that might be a viable point of view as for Firefox too - unless someone really speeds that one up to make it usable (by that I mean much more than just twice as fasr) and it is integrated into RISC OS better apart from the odd bug in the current release.
