Phoenix 0.5 and mouse gestures
8th December 2002
Phoenix 0.5 has been released, and so far it’s an absolute dream. The Windows installer is a paltry 6.1 MB and it is noticable faster than Phoenix 0.4—the initial speed boost was so impressive I spent several minutes loading up large, bloated sites just to admire the speed with which they appeared. The Phoenix team are aiming for a 5 MB Windows installer for the final release—here’s hoping they manage it.

- Open the Phoenix
prefs.jsfile in a text editor. On Windows, you will find this in your Application Data file—mine (Win 98) is in
- Find the line containing
user_pref("mozgest.mousebutton", 0);and change the number to 2 (for right mouse button) or 1 (for middle mouse button).
- Save the file, reload Phoenix and you’re done.
