    Call me shallow, but I may well do it just for the sake of having a claim to ( a very very very small portion of) a Guinness world record!

    I'll be downloading it. I much prefer Firefox, not for any anti MS sentiment but I just prefer the way it works.

    If, as they say, FF3 is going to be faster it addresses the only thing I don't like about FF2. The length of time it takes to load compared to IE.

    Re: Headlines - Firefox 3 to launch on Tuesday, June 17th

    I have just come from a seminar about onlinestores...was very exciting learning all the market strategies involved in making an online store a sucees. There were several keynotes for apple users and powerpoint presentations. Very interesting to see how many of the speakers used the macbook and how many used the notebooks. But what made me excited is that not even one of them fired up microsoft internet explorer in their presentations and demonstrations. An when I learnt that most of them had never met each other for the first time today< I was even more impressed that they used firefox. So I went a step further and asked them what version they were using...didn't get a chance to ask them all...the breaks were short and lunch was a working one.....the all are using the beta version of firefox 3!

    The fact that am on firefox now on my sisters laptop...she is using mine to watch a movie...adds to the flava...who installed it for her...certainly not me...and she does claim to be a complete novice! there is almost no sign of IE its like its not installed!

    Dont know about you but i can see firefox breaking there record. to be honest even without announcing that they want to they would. The fact that they have....well it will be interesting to see what happens.

    Myself, it will be a pleasure to help them achieve and surpass that goal. I hope they dont take Opera mobile phone offering next...coz I love Opera!

    Hopefully they have improved the download manager that was my main problem with Firefox 2, it took a while to open and save certain files. I use Firefox as a backup browser if websites don't display properly in my main browser (Opera), I find Opera alot faster than it's competitors and I just updated to the latest version of Opera today aswell so it'll be interesting to see how FF compares.

    I don't have a problem with FF2. So I don't see the point in downloading + installing.
    I may however download it just to help that Guinness world record
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Isnt there a plugin to backup bookmarks, plugins etc so when you move to another pc or upgrade you have them all preconfigured and installed again within one click?

    I hope they smoothed out the problems that were in the beta. When I downloaded it it would occasionally crash which was pretty annoying.

    Re: Headlines - Firefox 3 to launch on Tuesday, June 17th

    If your worried about Bookmarks, download Foxmarks, its a great addon anyway, but what im getting at is that by using that i have all my bookmarks in FF3 that i used to in FF2.

    Im not really sure if it transfers the bookmarks over on just a plain browser without the addon as i had foxmarks before trying. Im sure it will though...
