Firefox 3

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Today (Tuesday, June 17, 2008) is Firefox 3 Download Day. Help Firefox set a Guinness World Record for most software downloads in 24 hours.

I have been using Firefox for the past 4+ years on my Windows PCs, on my Linux Ubuntu box, on my Mac, and my thumb drive to use anywhere. It is the safest way to use the internet. It’s got Add-ons galore to customize it the way you want. Some of the add-ons I use are: ColorZilla,, DownThemAll!, Firebug, Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer, Gmail Notifier, Google Calendar Notifier, Google Notebook, Greasemonkey, MeasureIt and Remember The Milk for Gmail. Don’t forget to add your favorite search engines to the search box like Google, Wikipedia, IMDB, Flickr Tags, Amazon, and SearchMash. One cool feature I use everyday is the inline find.

So dump IE already and move on up to FF.
