      I put myself in for it as well when I heard about it. Anything to do with promoting Guinness is good in my eyes.

      It’s interesting to see how all of the browsers fare with the latest Acid3 test

      The link below has some screenshots of the test results from various browsers.

      Cool. I’ll certainly be downloading it. Hopefully the theme I use will still be compatible. The default theme is terrible.

      I’ll download it out of curiosity; but I’m certainly not going to ‘pledge’ to use it. :P I used to be a big Firefox advocate but it’s gone down the tubes recently with version 2.0 – IE is now much better. All Firefox seems to do these days (on my machine at least) is crash and close Windows randomly without warning. Highly annoying.. :?

      I’ve been using the Firefox3 betas for a while now and they are indeed a huge improvement. I’d started looking at other browsers because 2 was just so damn leaky and unstable, but that seems to be fixed now in version 3.

      Anyone got their mitts on it yet?

      No problems here either, was smooth running. To be honest never had much issues with firefox being buggy, tho others seem to have had different experience

      Looking forward to upgrading, I was using the RC2 portable for awhile and liked the improvements. Still waiting until my extensions support it though, can’t live without them at this stage. :)

      First impressions are good. Zoom is much improved and I like the new auto-completion also. Layout and UI is very similar but looks much more polished. Time will tell if it’s stable enough but so far so good..

      honestly i’m really happy with firefox 2.0.0.14
      ie 7 might be able to do new shiney things, by ff was able to do new shiney things before ie got them.

      tbh, so long as ff doesn’t have the largest market share it is less likely to be targeted by hackers(right).

      so please don’t switch over, i’d hate to have to start using opera.

      I managed to download Firefox 3 on the day. At least on the surface level, it’s basically the same.

      I use Internet Explorer 7 on the university computers because Firefox takes ages to load for some reason. Both are at a high enough of a standard that I’m happy to use either. I still prefer Firefox though.

      Mozilla has officially made history with a new Guinness world record for the largest number of software downloads in a 24-hour period.

      The final record breaking 8,002,530 downloads for web browser Firefox 3.0 took place in June. [/quote:c598aa2255]
