Firefox 3: now available bug-free, say devs
Ready for record attempt
Mozilla is claiming the second release candidate of Firefox 3.0 is free of bugs.
There may be problems with software on the server side or websites but the browser itself has had 10 problems fixed with the second release candidate (RC2), made available yesterday. By bugs developers mean issues that they are aware of rather than every single problem with the application.
RC2 is meant for developers and enthusiasts to test before the final release in the next week or so. The new browser is meant to be quicker and easier to use and personalise.
Mozilla is aiming to set a new record for most software downloads within 24 hours with the final release of Firefox 3.0. It is aiming for 1.6m downloads in a day.
Download Day will be some time in mid-June - Mozilla said it wants about a week after releasing the final candidate to check there are no major problems.
Firefox has just under 20 per cent of the total browser market. ®
firefox 3 is miles ahead of anything windows has to offer. give these guys credit they aint as big as Microsoft but the stuff rhwy write is definitely more stable. firefox under linux is far more stable.
Firefox 3 is great
Been using FF3 since beta5, and have grown to like it very much! It's now my permanent browser of choice, and RC2 has been very fast and stable for me.
I would like to use Opera 9.5 though, as it looks eye-candylicious (I'm shallow like that), but Opera STILL does not have drag and go for links (yes I know you can use mouse gestures, but I'm to ingrained with using the left mouse button for dragging links and letting to to open a new tab - which works with the Easy Drag to Go extension in FF and IE7Pro in IE).
Opera people, give me drag and go, and I will regrettably leave FF.
Paris, because I'd like to drag her and let go (off the side of a tall building)
After posting my previous comment about FF3 being fast and stable, it crashed on my for the 1st time EVER! What's up with that? So, it's DOES have a bug!
Murphy's Law strikes again!
Alien bug, cos I found a bug....
