Firefox 3 - Download it today!

Firefox 3 launches today, and it is well worth the download -- faster, more stable, numerous other worthy features.

The Firefox team is trying to set a Guinness world record for one day downloads, so get your copy today!

The release started at noon CST today and was, predictably, a meltdown for the download servers for the first hour or so. Things have improved, but because of the clustered server environment, make sure you are downloading FF3 and not FF 2.0.0.14.

It is blazingly fast and a joy to use.

When I last checked (around 4:20 PM, 4 hours after it was released) over 1,280,000 downloads had been recorded.

Late breaking update: at around 6:30, 18 and a half hours after release, over 6,063,737 copies have been downloaded.
