Editors' Review

Download.com staff

This freeware Web browser fails to add anything new or improved to the field. Phoenix Web Browser's plain pull-down menus and simple buttons resemble the more popular browsers. You won't find a Help function, but only the most novice users would need one.

This program offers the browser standards, allowing the user to enter a URL, click links, and save favorites. It has most of the functions you'll find in default installations of Firefox or Internet Explorer. This application does add a menu to open and read mail from select e-mail programs. There are also some rarely needed functions to print or capture the desktop. More important are the many functions this application lacks. There aren't any methods to add plug-ins, change fonts, increase or decrease text sizes, disable javascript, or the many other features found in the popular browsers.

We can't say this program is more efficient, as Phoenix Web Browser is consistent with Firefox for memory use. There really isn't any reason to use this application over any of the other free, but much more robust, Web browsers.
