Mozilla Firefox 3, Final Release: Download Day.

The new Firefox 3 web browser is to be released on the official Mozilla Download Day, Tuesday, June 17, 2008. An informative article about this release and Microsoft’s rapid effort to catch-up using IE-8 was recently published by PC World. I strongly suggest that you download Firefox 3 directly from a Mozilla site. As I write, this site is still devoted to the download of Firefox, however.

The good people on the Firefox 3 project are trying to set a Guinness World Record for downloading software in a single day. My best guess is that they will achieve this, because there is currently no such record in existence.

More importantly, I recently tried to download Release Candidate 3 of Firefox from other sites, and while beginning to install, they displayed instructions in a language which I did not recognize. These were reputable sites, but something was clearly going awry.

While you are downloading this excellent browser, I would also suggest looking over more of
Mozilla’s software and other offerings.

A Field Guide to Foxfire 3 by Debra Lyn Richardson is available at her
WordPress site and should definitely be referred to for many technical details, feature descriptions, and links.

Peace, Doc
