ANYTHING COOL & GEEKY
The much-anticipated Firefox 3 is finally available for download today. If you haven’t done so, what are you waiting for? Be part of history-making and help Firefox 3 set a new Guinness World Record for the numbers of download, although I’m not sure whether there was such a record to be begin with. Already, 6.9 million downloads have been recorded (at this time of writing).
According to Mozilla, three solid years were spent in development with over 15,000 bug fixes and feature improvements, a new page rendering engine, remarkable performance gains and multiple OS integration. A few of the features I really like are the One-Click Bookmarking function, the Anti-Malware security feature, and the Download Manager with pause-and-resume feature! Brilliant.

If you are still using Internet Explorer as your default browser, perhaps it’s time to join the ‘dark’ side. There’s a saying that goes – “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em”. You probably won’t look back again, unless you are in the web industry where you constantly need to ensure cross-browser compatibility for your projects.
The ball is back in Microsoft’s court for now. Let us wait and see what they can do with Internet Explorer 8 (still in Beta).
