Firefox 3 aims for World Record Download Day

* Update: Download Day officially starts on June 17th at 10 am PDT (For New Zealanders, that actually works out to 5am on Wednesday June 18th...)

Set aside some time this Tuesday to join in "Download Day 2008", which aims to set an impressive Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in 24 hours!

Tuesday July 17th is the official launch date of Firefox 3, the latest version of the speedy and customisable web browser (descended from the Mozilla Suite).

Download Day - English
Firefox 3 has been in beta testing for the last few months, and users say it's much faster, has increased security, and adds a bunch of great new features that will change the way you used the Web.

The newest version of Firefox has more than 15,000 improvements, and features one-click bookmarking, a "smart location bar" which tries to guess which websites you're trying to get to, and much speedier performance (particularly with Java-based sites like Gmail).

Firefox 3 also includes phishing and malware protection, plus instant site ID info. The session restore feature has been improved, you can zoom in on websites with the browser, and enjoy built-in spell checking. Plus there's over 5,000 add-ons to customise and tailor the browser to your individual tastes and needs.

To help Firefox set its new record (and do yourself a favour by getting the latest and greatest internet web browser), download Firefox 3 on Tuesday June 17th. (The official "24 hour period" will begin when the software is released online, so those in the Southern Hemisphere may have to wait until Tuesday afternoon, local time).
