      Whats amusing is that Opera 9.5 as all the features of FF3 and more by standard and is so much more polished just a shame it won't handle ActiveX. Opera tend to lead the way only to have the competition copy and prosper from all their hard work.

      It was there all the time but the servers were getting hamered, I still can't get on the Mozilla website but there are various other sites that are mirroring it.

      I use to wonder what all the fuss was with Firefox as I was more than happy with IE but after installing it once I haven't looked back. The big plus for me is the almost countless add ons that are available which at the time IE didn't have although Microsoft have now cottoned on to it.

      Re: Firefox 3: Download Day

      I am not sure on the install yet but figured I would download it to help the record as I am a supporter for Firefox. I don't remember when I switched but it has been quite a few years now. IE was just horrible for me back in the day and just getting tabbed browsing alone was a huge feature for me. IE now offers a lot of what Firefox has but I don't see any reason to go back now though.
