Firefox 3 was released today, and they are trying to set a world record for the number of downloads in a single day. Get yours now!
To learn more about how to use it, download/check out this Field Guide to Firefox 3. (HT to Jane's.)
I've used it for a few hours now, and here are some things you should know.
I trust that those addons will be updated soon to function in Firefox 3.
A couple other observations:
- The rendering of pages is noticeably faster.
- The default theme and the new icons are clean and attractive.
- All of your Firefox 2 preferences and customizations are retained in the upgrade (except for the addons that don't work).
- Some of the other important addons for me (Zotero, FireFTP, ShareThis) work perfectly well.
- So far it has been entirely stable. I say, "Go for it!"
