    Default Whoooaa...hello Firefox 3

    So Firefox 3 just released the other day...I've been an IE7 user for a while; tried Firefox a few times, but never was impressed. I decided to try out the latest, Firefox 3, and wooooooooow. I have never seen my internet pages load so quickly (I'm using a basic DSL line). It's A LOT faster than any other browser I've tried. I definitely recommend it. Haven't seen a single pop up either.

    I pledged yesterday, but the download site was so busy yesterday that I couldn't even load Mozilla's page before timing out. For those who don't know, Mozilla is trying to get in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most downloads in 24hrs. Help out, if you want, and go get it.

    I was too, but I reconfigured my comp, and instead of using 2 that I had burnt off on a disc, I just downloaded 3.

    I'm impressed

    I tried firefox 2 a while back and didn't see any big benefits over IE7; but 3 is just so much faster. I'm just clicking on pages to watch them load in an instant haha.

    I have been downloading Firefox for at least a year or two and have noticed a substantial drop in viri and adware (over internut exploder). None the less 3 looks like it has alot of eye candy in it (my brother downloaded it i probably will not).

    Eye Candy? It looks pretty basic to me. I put the skin back to the Default to see what you're talking about (I'm a theme user).



    If you're concerned that it's graphic intensive and sacrifices speed, you've got nothing to worry about. I just uploaded that image to photobucket in about four seconds flat.
