I did it the first thing in the morning. Firefox 3 is awesome (looks wise). Seems as fast (if not faster) than the earlier version. And it is a very fast download. Don't know how they manage so many concurrent users!!

I have heard that Firefox 3 has its own format while saving download ? I mean if I end download in between, then I can resume from the point I had left. I dont need to start for begenning. It is just what most download accelerators do.

I am already using Firefox since long, but the .14 version.




One from my side: Downloaded and soon will be running that.

Done!

Does seem faster than the old one - could be an illusion though. It automatically updated all my plug-ins and extensions during installation.

Seamless transition!
