Just a little reminder: Firefox 3 is out now (I downloaded it and it works great). They want to set a Guinness World record for most downloads in 24 hours, so here is the link: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ - Don't wait till tomorrow!

Firefox 3 Web browser is now out as free download

NEW YORK (AP) — The new version of the Firefox Web browser became available as a free download Tuesday.

The release was delayed nearly two hours as visitors checking for the update overloaded Firefox's Web servers, which were slow or unreachable at times.

Firefox supporters organized launch parties around the world as they tried to set a world record for most software downloads in a 24-hour period.

The category is new, and Guinness World Records must certify it, a process that could take a week or longer.

Firefox comes from Mozilla, an open-source community in which thousands of people, mostly volunteers, collectively develop free products. Firefox is the No. 2 Web browser behind Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer.

Firefox 3 includes enhancements to help users organize their frequently visited Web sites and block access to sites known to distribute viruses and other malicious software.

Users of Yahoo Inc.'s mail service can also use Firefox 3 to send e-mail by clicking a "mailto" link they might come across clicking on a name or a "contact us" link on a Web page. Previously such links could only open a standalone, desktop e-mail program.

Firefox 3 also offers other design and speed improvements.

I don't like the way the new one looks, but I suppose I'll get used to it. Some of the fonts are significantly smaller.

It's easy to change the skin to whatever you want.

The only gripe I have is it screwed up my address bar pulldown menu which was how I accessed my "favorite" websites. I'll make it though. I Love FireFox.

Well, they had over 8 million downloads in 24 hours despite the servers being down for the first two hours. The people of Guinness are checking it as we speak. An impressive result, although the guys from Adobe claim that 8 million installs is just an average day for Flash Player - Mozilla had 1.6 million downloads the first day for Firefox 2:

Please be patient while the good people of Guinness review our World Record attempt. This might take a few days so please check back here. And, a huge thanks for all of your support!

As for the new lay out; that is mostly cosmetic, functionality is the same, but more important, it feels much faster!
