firefox-3-release-date-june-17 If you are a Firefox fan you may or may not know the new release Firefox 3 is available today at 10am PDT they are hoping to break a record for the most downloads in 24 hours. There are a great many new features in this release. Here are just a few.

New features in the Official release of Firefox 3.0 include a smart location bar that allows you to type words and they match against your history, your also able to bookmark the sites by just clicking the button at the right of the smart location bar.

If you click the favicon icon next to the URL of the site your looking at, you will get information about that site, although some sites will not have any information about them. Some other features you can get here is information on how many times you have visited this site and a lot more that is dependent sometimes on the website. British Airways even shows you who runs and designed the website.

We all know that Firefox 2 added Phishing protection and now Mailware protection has been added to Firefox 3, this will help protect you in many ways that you did not have in previous versions of Firefox. You can now click to see downloads from the browser with one-click just at the bottom of the browser and you will also find lots of new features that have been added to your download section.

There is now only one and half hours to the new release so if you want to help break a record get the new release in the next 24 hours. There are people poised all over the world to start this download so it will be interesting.

Thanks for posting this. I had signed up a while back and thought they were going to send out an email when Download Day came around. Either I did not get an email, or my Junk folder ate it.

I love Firefox. It will be interesting to see what 3 has to offer. Some of my add-ons aren't compatible, yet, but I'm sure they'll fix that before too long.
