Tuesday June 17th is the release date for Firefox 3! We (Firefox fans) are hoping to set a Guinness world record for the most times a piece of software is downloaded in the first 24 hours! If you could download Firefox 3 on Tuesday, that’d be a great help!
So what’s new in Firefox 3? Lots of stuff. Here are a few high points.
- A browser interface that look and acts more like your opperating system. Including native Mac checkboxes, buttons and scrollbars!
- Smart bookmarks, aka Places. The browser will automatically remember your ‘most visited’ and ‘recently visited’ sites via a quick bookmark in your bookmarks bar.
- Increased security. If you visit a site that may harm your computer, a warning message become very obvious!
- Smarter ‘Remember Password’ alert boxes. They’ll no longer take up precious surfing time.
- Smarter address bar so you can better see your auto complete matches and bookmark sites without leaving the address bar.
- Much better memory footprint on your computer! Leaving even more memory for other applications.
So what do you think? Can you download Firefox 3 on Tuesday June 17th??
