Today sees the official release of Firefox 3

Ubuntu users seem to have been granted the privilege of downloading the new release since this morning for some odd reason!

The guys behind Firefox are also trying for a Guinness record for the most downloads in a 24 hour period.

Inevitably their web servers have crashed under the load and are now displaying an error message:

Http/1.1 Service Unavailable

I guess that was to be expected, however their FTP servers are still working fine!

If you want to grab the new version of Firefox via FTP you can get it here

    Thanks for the FTP link Michele. Spent most of the day scratching my head as to how/why I couldn’t find any links to the new version.
    In my opinion Mozilla have done a poor job at actually organising the launch of the new release.

    I suspect that they weren’t quite prepared for the amount of traffic that hit their web servers 🙂

    I had similar but I suspected a few reloads would eventually land me on a server that was free… and it did. I really notice the faster page rendering.
    Cheers
