Firefox 3

For those who keep up with tech news you have probably heard that Firefox 3 is in the works. It has been in development for about two years. There are promised to be numerous features including increased browsing speed, one-click bookmarking, better security and anti-phishing measures, smart location bar,and many many other things that have techy names but don’t mean much until you actually use them.

Well finally Mozilla has released that the launch date for Firefox 3 is June 17th. Furthermore there is a report that Mozilla is attempting to set a Guinness world record by having Firefox 3 become the most downloaded software in one day. I for one plan on downloading Firefox 3 right away. However I will keep Firefox 2 just in case. Many of you know the problems that software early adopters have to put up with. However my past experience with Firefox upgrades has been good so I expect it to be a painless experience.

So I will do my part to help Mozilla make their world record. How about you?

    I have been using FF3beta5 for some months now since it was the default browser install for Ubuntu 8.04, and if the final release is anything like it I won’t be making the jump. It was terribly buggy and the drop-down address bar stinks (only shows the last 10 or most regularly used sites…)
    Finally, they put FF2 back on the software repository so I could easily downgrade. I like FF2 much better!

    Man, that’s too bad that it’s so buggy.  I was actually looking forward to using it.

    Maybe the release version will be better (I was using a beta). I hope it is, otherwise it will be  along way to go before version 4.

    Hmmm…I’ve been using the release candidate for over a week, with no significant problems.  For the most part I like the changes that have been made; the biggest problem is that a couple of my favorite addons like TabMixPlus haven’t released a FF3 version yet, but that’s not the browser’s fault, and that will definitely change once the actual release date comes.
