Firefox 3.0

I have been using Firefox 3.0 Release Candidate 2 for few weeks now. I can proudly say that this version is faster, safer and snappier than Firefox 2.0. There are several big changes in the user interface and I think they are quite useful. They have also managed to fix the problem with memory leak. As a web designer, I am also happy to know that Firefox 3.0 has passed Acid 2 Test which test the internet browsers against the web standard.

Please note that some of the extensions are still not being updated to Firefox 3.0. Please check on your favourite extensions before you upgrade.

Last but not least, the complete version of Firefox 3.0 will be released this Tuesday, June 17th. Let us make this as a Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in 24 hours :). Currently, there are only 5888 people in Malaysia who have pledged to download Mozilla Firefox 3.0. Come on, we need more people to download this amazing software :)

June 17, 2008 will be the day of winning and losing for Firefox.

Winning - as the most downloaded software in 24 hours.

Losing - because many, great add-ons are still not compatible with FF3. So this day will also be the day where significant number of users downgrade/rollback their new shiny Firefox 3. Hehe ;)

@tawel, that's true. I guess it will take time for the extension to be updated to Firefox 3.

Salam.
Actually, I’ve been using this latest Firefox since the latest Ubuntu released and I’ve already fallen in love with it. Because it has a very easy way to turn any website to Pdf. Read this . And try this.

But I don’t know whether it will working correctly in Window as it work very well in Ubuntu. Do tell me if it works well (I mean in changing a website to Pdf).

Kalau Abqori download di Mesir, akan bertambahkah kiraan rakyat Malaysia yang mendownloadnya? Huhuhu.

@abqori, I'm not sure whether saving website to PDF is provided within Firefox. Perhaps, you are using one of the various Firefox extensions.

Currently, I'm using Foxit PDF reader which allows me to read any PDF file and print/save website, Office documents in PDF form. There are several Firefox extensions that you can use to convert website into PDF :).
