Firefox 3.0, the resurgent browser developer has come of age with its latest
offering. The new browser has been downloaded well over 8 million times in 24
hours as against the developer's target of 5 million and has entered the
Guinness Book of World Records for maximum number of downloads in a single day
of download history. There was overwhelming support, both from the United
States and the Euro zone with downloads in excess of 2.5 million apiece.
response for the finished Mozilla browser is largely on account of meticulous
care the foundation has taken in providing solutions to expert suggestions. The
new version was delivered after three and half years of extensive research and
development which included of six months of public testing. The highly mutated
form of earlier versions of the browser is set to change the way users organize
and search the sites, they frequent more often. Back in late 1990's, the
Netscape, the first browser developer virtually lost out to Microsoft's
Internet Explorer, but with the third avatar of Firefox, they are making an
attempt to garner the past glory.
America Online took over Netscape, they created a non-profit Mozilla Foundation
in 2003. The first offering from them, the Firefox, itself was able to catch

browser developers including Opera and Safari do not match the speed rendered
by the latest Firefox version. Like its earlier version, this too has added
security features to expunge any misuse.
It has in-built features to instantly detect phishing and malware
forays. Moreover, one's computer's resources are less drained while navigating
on the internet with Firefox 3.0.
Microsoft also unveiled the public test version of the latest edition of
Internet Explorer, version 8.0. So far Firefox 3.0 has no competitor in terms
of effectiveness and efficiency to strike any comparison. But the fine tuned
edition of Internet Explorer which is expected to be released by the end of
this year may become a potential competitor in the e-space. It is learned that
even Apple's Safari browser has shrugged off its previous image of providing
surf solutions to its own devices, and would be extending its compatible
browsing services to other devices as well.

the subsequent versions of Firefox, which already offers exploring of multiple
tabs or windows, complex pages and lots of embedded content without crashing.
The exciting response on the download of new version, the most customizable
browser ever to hit the net will certainly prompt the Mozilla Foundation to
When Dean Hachamovitch, who heads the Internet
Explorer team, was spurred to comment on the Firefox success, said that, they
loved competition and the pressures have upped the ante of his team
qualitatively and quantitatively. Likewise, John Lilly the CEO of Mozilla
credited the success to the users and remarked a committed, energized global
community could do amazing things when they unite for a cause. Analysts predict
that the simmering truth would be, the coming days or months will trigger stiff
