Mozilla Firefox 3 Released

Post by Rahul on Wed Jun 18, 2008 1:27 pm

The new version of the Firefox Web browser - Firefox 3 - is now available as a free download.

The
release was delayed as visitors checking for the update overloaded
Firefox's Web servers. The site was slow or unreachable for about two
hours starting about 12:45 p.m. Eastern time, 15 minutes before the
scheduled release time, according to AlertSite, an Internet performance
monitoring company. Performance improved later in the day.

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.
