The status of Firefox is uncertain, I agree. But the sources have recently been placed in the GCCSDK autobuilder, so there's nothing stopping more work being done on it (AFAIK). Also AFAIK, further progress relies on work being done on the GCC suite, especially support for shared libaries. This is currently being done, so we can't entirely write off more Firefox development in the future.

As for Phoenix, like rjek I don't believe this should divert development time from NetSurf. RISC OS has always been plagued by duplication of effort, with browsers in particular. It seems to me there's a clear need for both NetSurf and Firefox - trying to develop MORE browsers will just splinter the already tiny developer base. There's plenty of other stuff in the ROOL sources which needs urgent attention, from anyone interested in that initiative.
