Roughly one in five people who access the internet already use Firefox, and today’s launch of Firefox 3 takes the browser to new levels of speed, ease of use, security, functionality and expandability that should only increase those numbers. I’ve been using beta and release candidate versions leading up to Firefox 3 and can say with certainty that it is leaps and bounds ahead of all the other major browsers and even its predecessor, Firefox 2.
A quick look at the new features gives a glimpse of the power Firefox 3 packs, but the fact it uses your hardware better than before with better memory use and page rendering means the experience is noticeably better than before for every task we do online.
If you download Firefox 3 in the next day you will be taking part in setting a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours while improving your internet experience. As I’m writing this, 1,891,865 have already downloaded it today.
