8 million Firefox3 downloads in 24 hours – World Record
…and iam a part of the record. See my certificate (click on the image for a bigger pic) for my involvement in the project 😉 Firefox 3 is indeed faster than the previous version. Some add ons are not working, but its only natural that over a period of time those will also be upgraded. Firefox 3 still hogs the memory though. I had 3 windows of Firefox open, each with more than 10 tabs open and it was using up 210MB of my system’s memory. But i still feel that my system is working faster after the upgrade. A few websites still cause my Firefox to crash, but i believe its because of the faulty coding of the website. I had the same problems with IE and also previous versions of Firefox.
Verdict: Firefox rocks… Internet Explorer sucks.
