Firefox 3 Is Finally Available!

Firefox 3 is finally here!

If you haven’t heard by now, Firefox version 3 has finally come out of beta. I downloaded it and installed it not that long ago. In honor of occasion the folks at Firefox have organized Download Day a promotion that, if successful, would put the download of Firefox 3 in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most software downloaded in 24 hours. If you download it by 11:16 a.m. PDT June 18, 2008 (U.S Pacific Daylight Savings Time), 8:16 p.m. Central European Time, 10:16 p.m. in Moscow, 2:16 p.m. in Toronto and EDT U.S., 3:16 p.m. in Rio, in China and Japan the end time is already June 19th at 2:16 a.m. and 3:16 a.m. respectively, you can help Firefox to qualify. You should only download one copy per machine, so if you have more than one machine, you could download more than one copy, but be sure to download only once on each machine, check out the Download Day site for more information.

Most everyone has heard of the Guinness Book of World but for most of us having our names associated with anything listed in the annual book or at their website is not very likely. The Firefox site mentioned world records that a man ate 108 smarties with chopsticks in 3 minutes, a man had 153 clothes pins attached to his face, 1.721 people played “Smoke on the Water” at the same time, and one man made a balloon dog behind his back in 9.26 seconds in their promotion for the download event. So here is a chance for you to be tied to a world record.

I wish the folks at Firefox good luck with this campaign. Are you taking part in any of the download activities? If you have any other comments, I would love to hear them.
