Firefox Download Day – Get Mozilla Firefox 3

Posted in Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows

It has been announced during my previous post that Mozilla Firefox 3 will be launched today, and so it did! Right now, there are thousands of downloads going on since the news have gone public. It was phenomenologically huge traffic such that the traffic to Firefox home page was rather sluggish.

Nonetheless, this is also an on-going campaign to hit the target of achieving the largest volume of downloads within a 24 hours timeframe. Hence, good luck, Mozilla. Meanwhile, if you do support Mozilla Firefox 3, download it today.

The news is out, Mozilla has revealed that Firefox 3, the next generation of Mozilla Firefox browser, will be released next Tuesday, June 17th, 2008.

Although some developers and testers have already got their hands on the latest applications, it is still under pre-release milestone stage; that is, it is not yet a production release. By next Tuesday, the full version will be revealed, with several fixes.

Firefox 3 is a result of more than 34 months of active development from thousands of contributions from the community. Remember, the date is June 17, 2008 – the day when Mozilla also attempts to break the world’s record of the highest number of downloads in a single day.
