Multiple Enthusiasms

Infinite jest. Excellent fancy. Flashes of merriment.

Firefox the third (or: the day Mozilla’s server fried)

Today’s the big day for Firefox 3, which is, apparently, like a go-jillion times more awesome than Firefox 2 (which was pretty awesome in its own right). Mozilla is hoping for a world record of downloads today.

At the time of this writing, that download went live four minutes ago.

My advice is to wait a few hours; I have a feeling their server’s gonna fry for the next several, at least. Because I can’t even get to the site to link to it, because apparently the 1.7 million people who pledged to download it all decided to do so simultaneously and right away.

For those of you who don’t yet use Firefox; it’s more secure and generally a better experience than IE. It’s got thousands of support add-ons, extensions, and themes, and even better, it just works way better than its competition. Highly recommended.

Anyway, I’ll try to update later with a link. You can probably easily Google Firefox to find it, though.


  1. Uh huh. How much are they paying you Will? Honestly. You use to pimp out people not technology. How low will you sink to?

  2. Three is so pretty! I admit that isn’t the best reason to use it, but given the choice between Explorer or pretty, I’ll take pretty.
