Firefox 3 is Here!

If you’re an avid Firefox user, I’m sure you already know all about this, but just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, I’m here to fill you in! Ever since Firefox 2 was released, there has been talk about a third version. And well, that day has come! Firefox 3 was released on June 17, 2008 (just yesterday) and it is now available for download. It’s been three years in the making and it’s finally here. Read on for all the details!

This version of Firefox included three Release Candidates (RC) that were able to fix any issues that came about during the testing process. In fact, the third RC was released just last week (on June 11, 2008) and it took care of the last found issue. Mozilla said the final release of Firefox 3 is identical to the RC3. With the official release of Firefox 3, Mozilla is hoping to set a Guinness World Record for the most downloads of one application in one day. I’d say they’ve got a good chance, wouldn’t you?!

With the new version of the popular Firefox Web browser, you can expect performance enhancements, more privacy and it’s even easier to use. It also comes with a more simple navigation system so that you can surf the Web with confidence. It also, of course, has stronger security to protect you from viruses, spyware, pop ups and any other type of malware you can think of. It truly has all the bases covered! If you haven’t done so already and you would like to download Firefox 3, you can do so right here. Just click on the Download Latest Version link in the top right hand corner and follow the directions. That’s it. Get in on the fun today!
