An hour into the Download Day launch, the Mozilla servers were heavily overloaded and many people (myself included) could not get through. There was a quick apology posted by Melissa over on the Mozilla Blog with the promise that things will go live soon and the download day will start with the site’s go-live. That’s all well and good, BUT with a little help from Read Write Web I was able to snag the download and install the latest and greatest in a matter of seconds.
(No worries, Mozzie. I’ll be downloading several times tonight from home to count towards the download goal!)
Hooray, it installed!
I really like the changes I’m seeing. I’m now reading over the Power User’s Guide over on LifeHacker and Deb Richardson’s Field Guide to Firefox 3. The overall extension support seems pretty good too. Out of all of my extensions, only a handful are not yet FF3-ready.
So those of you who’ve been counting down the hours like I have … what’s your take on the new ‘Fox so far?
