My web browser of choice has been Firefox for a few years now. I love how it works and it just keeps getting better and better. I’ve been using the betas of version 3 of Firefox without many problems at all for a few months now, and happily the official release is happening next week. This time it’s different and the Firefox team has set an ambitious goal of setting a Guinness world record by having the most software downloads in one day. The launch date is June 17, 2008, and I would encourage everyone to download Firefox 3 next Tuesday. I’m going to be downloading it and celebrating (probably with some Guinness).
It’s been a remarkable journey for the web browser from the early days when the code was released by Netscape (as documented in the film Code Rush) to the revitalized and dynamic progress that Firefox has made. It’s changed the online world and made the web a much more exciting place.
