Mozilla has released RC3 of Firefox 3, head on over to the Moxilla page to download it and give it a shot but remember this is made available for testing purposes only and you should still rely on existing stable releases of Firefox 2
whats new in Firefox 3?
Firefox 3 is based on the Gecko 1.9 Web rendering platform, which has been under development for the past 34 months. Building on the previous release, Gecko 1.9 has more than 14,000 updates including some major re-architecting to provide improved performance, stability, rendering correctness, and code simplification and sustainability. Firefox 3 has been built on top of this new platform resulting in a more secure, easier to use, more personal product with a lot more under the hood to offer website and Firefox add-on developers.
- More Secure
- Easier to Use
- More Personal
- Improved Platform for Developers
- Improved Performace

My new favorite browser has got to be flock, I usually have the meda bar up top up displaying a live feed of HDR images from flickr.
To make things better, I’ve just discovered PocketFlock, we are not allowed to install applications at work so I have a full sweet of applications I’ve downloaded from portableapps.com, including firefox stashed in the My Documents folder on my work computer. I strongly dislike IE and refuse to use it even at work, (now if only I could get them to let me switch my work machine to Linux)
PocketFlock also requires no instillation to function and gives me all the features of the standard version of flock.
I strongly believe this is the direction ALL software manufactures should be heading can you imagine how much easier it would be to do a bare bones restore on a crashed system if all applications did not require to be installed? This is one of my absolute favorite things about OSX NO REGISTRY. want to back up your appications? just drag the /Applications directory over to your backup medium. need to restore it? Drag it back! So simple!
So Please by all means go get your hands on PocketFlock now and check out this wonderful browser! This very post was written via the “Blog this” right click menu from within pocket flock.
