Firefox 3 Download Day!

Download Day 2008

Firefox is aiming to set a record! They're recording the number of downloads of the newest version of Firefox today, its release date, and submitting the number to the Guinness Book of World Records. Be a part of it!

According the Firefox's twitter stream, "Download Day starts at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Tuesday, June 17th." Which is 1:00pm Eastern Standard Time. I know what I'll be doing after lunch!

Why Firefox 3?

I've used Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox for a long time, and am exceedingly pleased with it. It takes less system memory than competing browsers, according to a recent comparison by Lifehacker, and consistently beat out IE in the other categories. Besides, you're a reader of my blog, and my blog looks much better in Firefox. You should download it and see what I mean. After 1pm today, that is.

Setting the Guinness world record may be the stated goal of all this activity, but in the end that's only a novelty. The real show is the online mass mobilization that's taking place.

And here is where I have a bone to pick. Usually, my bloggy friends don't lead me astray. But...I downloaded FF3 and immediately lost internet abilities for three days. I'm still not sure what happened...
