Firefox 3 comes out this Tuesday (tomorrow) and hopefully there will be a record on most downloads.

The server is getting hit HARD. So if you want it, hang in there. I have it installed on my iMac.

I always use Firefox as a backup. Version 3 looks so much nicer on OSX than 2 ever did.

I've been running Firefox 3 since before the RC days, so I'm quite excited about the final release!

Ditto here. I have been messing it back with one of the early Beta's. There was one Beta that locked a lot but that got taken care of with the next one.

The Final version looks very nice.

Yuck. I just downloaded it and I hate it (so far)! It's so much slower on my computer (late '07 macbook) than the previous version!

I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't like it?

I have been using it since RC1 and for some reason it "forgets" my settings in Google web search. I have it set to display 50 searches per page and it keeps reverting back, seems to be a problem with cookies. I have erased my private data and cookies hoping for the settings to stick but no luck yet!

It blew away some of my add-ons, but most were updated. Runs slick on the old G4 PowerBook, less memory requirements so far! On the MacPro it runs much faster. Did you do a restart, cindyg86? Might just need its little brain refreshed.

Firefox 3 looks sooooo much better than 2 on my MBP... It's definitely a setup and the speed doesn't seem to be any slower. I haven't noticed much of a speed up either though.

I downloaded it and tried it out but didn't like the way it handled bookmark organization, so I'm back to FF 2.0.0.12...

So it is much faster than the old FF... LOL that is not saying much. Safari will always perform better as it has the latest software technology and is much better integrated for mac that FF3 will ever be. Sorry but I trashed by stupid PC because I didn't want to have 10 applications for each thing I needed to do and I am not about to start that bad habit with my new iMac.

Good bye FF, wasn't nice knowing ya.
