Mozilla Firefox 3 Beta 3 Released
The Mozilla Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Mozilla Foundation, has released Beta 3 of the much-anticipated 3rd edition of the Firefox browser. It is currently available for download here, but be aware it’s only a beta, it may break your computer entirely, and none of your current extensions (add-ons) will work out of the box. There are ways to enable them through about:config – just do a Google search and you should find it easily.
Firefox is my browser of choice on all platforms; and yes, it even trumps the mighty Safari on the Mac, at least for me. It’s extensible through add-ons and Greasemonkey scripts, has ad blocking, is easily skinned without bogging down the system or worrying about spyware, and can also be easily tuned-up through the about:config page.
If you are still using clunky old spyware-prone Internet Explorer, consider making the switch. Most sites are working out compatibility, and from what I’ve seen of my site stats, the majority of you are already using Firefox. If you’re interested in the bleeding-edge version, go check out that beta. My favorite new feature: resumable downloads – finally!
