Get Ready! Firefox 3 is Almost Here…

by Karthik on June 17, 2008 · 4 comments


Yes get ready. The most anticipated release of the year is just a few hours away as I write this. Firefox 3 will arrive today that is June 17th after over 34 months of active development.

As you might already know, Mozilla is trying to create a world record for the most software downloads in 24 hours, and that time just got a little bit more closer.

To Help its cause, Mozilla is hosting a Download Day event, the Camp Firefox BBQ, at its offices in Mountain View, California, today. The company also has asked Firefox fans to host parties to encourage friends to download with them, and place ‘Download Day’ buttons on their Web sites as reminders of the big day.

I’ll be writing a detailed review of Firefox 3 in a couple of days. Until then make sure you help Mozilla create the world record. It’ll be a championing of the Open Source browsers initiatives to make the web a better place.

As of now 1,430,700+ have already pledged to download Firefox 3, and one of them is me!

Come on guys let the tubes carry only Firefox and nothing else. Screw IE! Screw Microsoft!

Spread the word! Visit the Download Day website, and get ready to download Firefox, Its finally there’ Almost there’

True V1 : But hey update update I’ve been updated ! I’m running the ‘real’ deal now. It really loads much faster. It’s memory footprint = smaller but 40 mb to be on this site is quite much I think. But it’s faster better. What do we want more?

A really well written and researched article. I loved it from beginning to end. I had to come back to it a few times. Thanks for the great read and so well done.
