Firefox 3 out now

Firefox 3 has just been released a couple of hours ago.
I managed to download it earlier but good luck getting on the site.
Looks like the site is being hammered as they try to break the world record for the most downloads in a 24 hour period.

I had no trouble getting it about 15 minutes ago, the download was a bit slow and stopped a couple of times but it did complete and is operational.

The one on Filehippo is/was RC3 even though it's billed as the finished item. Exactly the same file as the RC3 version they have listed separately. At least it was when I downloaded it at 3pm or so.

Mirrors here; click here

Pick one and navigate to /mozilla/firefox/releases/3.0/win32/en-GB/ for Windows UK release

7.0mb instead of 7.15mb for RC3

I downloaded it from the Europe site and it said firefox 3 but as far as I could tell it's the beta version, on one of the pages I looked at it said release candidate so I un-installed it. Version 3 doesn't support the All-In-One Sidebar add on anyway so I'll wait for a while before installing it, from what I could tell there wasn't any big difference to version 2 anyway.

Just got the real Firefox3 via email from Mozilla,as Brundle said the download on Filehippo was RC3

I installed it this evening but have uninstalled it again and reverted to the previous version. I don't like V3, most of my add-ons were not supported in V3, I prefer to keep such add-ons as Image Shack and some others which I had got used to having.
