    Firefox 3

    So, firefox 3 is to be released next tuesday (save any huge bugs being found).

    And to launch it Mozilla want you to join in and set a record for the most software download in 24 hours!

    Spread Firefox | Download Day 2008

    could be good....


    But the browser itself looks really good too. Is it bad that I'm excited about this...

    Been using RC 1 for a while, now on RC2. Seems OK to me, I've not broken it yet!

    I'm using the release candidate at the moment. I like the changes that they've made to the interface and the improved download manager. I'm not sure what else is meant to have changed?

    I have been using 3 for a while myself.. not broken it yet either RC1 was buggy and RC2 seems ok.

    One thing i did find was that i could not install Flash player like you normally do i had to download the FF version and install it that way.

    Seriously, the only problem at the mo' is that .pdf files don't open in the browser. Not tried the download manager yet.

    I actually see the pdf thing as a good thing.. I can't stand having files open in the browser... but that's just my opinion..

    Just downloaded and installed the latest from filehippo and it was still RC3.

    EDIT: sorry the start page tells you its RC3 but the version number is 3.0
