Firefox Download Day

Recommended Posts


How embarrassing for Mozilla to have their release scheduled at 1:00PM EST and here it is over three hours later and their servers are still down, unable to handle the traffic. Even their add-ons site has been down in entirety (not to mention the fail-over should their regular site be down...so much for fail safe).

It was kinda bad on Mozilla, hah... i suppose it was more than they anticipated...

I hope we're making some good today... i dont know how they are counting all the downloads, i assume by unique IP's?

Earlier I went to download and it sent me to a server in France! It said it was going to take like an hour... ahhh... reminders of dial-up, lol.

Anyway, Firefox 3 rocks... ive been using the beta's and rc's for the past several months... and I think its great... i especially love how you can go to the address bar and sortof search your past history of websites.. makes finding my way to UP that much easier :thumbsup:

World Record was set!

Mozilla and the Firefox team (along with a lil help from all of us) did it!

Well, despite my love for Opera and its superiority over Firefox, I have to admit that cake there is pretty awesome.
