Us true, hardcore users, have been playing with the Version 3 Beta for a while now.

Nice to see you all finally catch up.

It is in a 24 hour period. I can't seem to find the exact time of the release, but the counter is still going.

It was supposed to be 1pm East US & 10am West Coast US, but it was delayed a couple hours due to server issues from the volume of people trying to download.

Cool counter by the way! I saw this thread after the 24 hours was over, so it's not actually counting anything. But the numbers are impressive. And I did download yesterday triggered by the article in the New York Times.

Yeah, like the NYT article says...
...what does that mean for a product that has been designed, written and tested in public? There's no surprise about what it does; that's been clear for months. And you could get a nearly complete version of the software for the last several weeks.

Today's release is really a marketing event to spread the word about Firefox...

It's not my main browser, but I like Firefox. It's good to see a viable alternative doing this well.

Even I like Firefox. It's very much user friendly.

I just noticed the first change I could find in firefox3's page rendering.

say you float a div left and then set it a max-width of 500px.
then you float a 100x200 image right inside of it.
ff2 lets the image's float-powers stretch the div to its max of 500px.
ff3 says that the the div, by being given only a max-width tries
to shrink to its minimum and overpowers the images' floaty might rendering it at 100px (- any padding).

I don't know if ff2 is compliant with css2 and ff3 is compliant with
the css3 recommendations or what.
