Thumbs up Firefox 3.0 Download Day...

Not sure how many Firefox fans/users we have here, but today is download day. Their sites went down due to the number of users connected but Mozilla Europe is back up so you can get it from there. The best browser just got way better.

Download Counter

Re: Firefox 3.0 Download Day...

U.S. site is sporadically back up...
I've been using Firefox for a loooooooooooong time...ever since beta of Firebird.

Downloaded and installed!

Re: Firefox 3.0 Download Day...

Just like to add that Firefox 3 has only been on my system for about ten minutes, and it already kicks unholy arse.
Heh...and I thought 2 couldn't get any better. Love the subtly new look, and it's miles faster.

About 30 minutes here and it blows everything else away

Firefox 2.0 was my web OS, Firefox 3.0 takes that to the next level...

I got Firefox about 2 or 3 weeks ago, and I really like the spellcheck

Re: Firefox 3.0 Download Day...

Firefox for Windows = awesomeness
Firefox for Mac = okay, but it's not my main browser.

It seems to me that this Firefox 3 release is waaaay hyped up from what it normally would/should be. I remember the Firefox 2 release, it wasn't that big but the change from the Firefox before it imho was bigger.

Re: Firefox 3.0 Download Day...

Firefox is the browser I use. But this "download day" simply sounds stupid to me.
They want to make a record that doesn't exist and that probably no one will want to break.
My Firefox updates itself, I don't even need to care about it.
But, no! They want you to enter the site and download it, because it's "download day"!
IMO, that's a childish marketing strategy.

Re: Firefox 3.0 Download Day...

Download Day is a dumb idea... the McDonalds song is dumb too. It works though. When you make a release into an event, word of it will spread faster than if it were casually distributed via auto updates. People are talking about it here just as tons of other forums out there, and that will draw non-Firefox users to try it out.
