Firefox 3

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).

Firefox 3 - Download Day

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.

For a more complete review of the new Firefox 3 browser, read the review by PC Magazine.

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).
