As a web designer, I have a soft spot for Firefox, which has done so much to promote standards-based web development and made enough of a dent in Internet Explorer’s market share that Microsoft is slowly making it suck a bit less.
The Firefox team are about to release version 3 of their fantastic browser and want to celebrate by trying to set a Guinness World Record for most downloads in a single day. So, if you’re reading this on June 17, go over to the Spread Firefox site and get it!
I’ve been using Firefox 3 in beta form for the last couple of months, and I must say that it has many improvements over its predecessor, especially the so-called Awesomebar. Try typing into the location bar and you’ll see what I mean: part history, part search, and it learns what you use over time, making it more useful the more you use it. It also has better bookmark management, and hugely improved integration into Mac OS X (it actually feels like a Mac app now).
If you’re still reading this, stop now, and go get Firefox 3.
