The Final version of Firefox 3 will be released on June 17th. The Firefox committee have also made June 17th its "Download Day," in an attempt to set the Guinness World Record of most downloads of a single application in a span of 24 hours. Even more good news to the Firefox committee as it has been previously announced that the award winning browser will also be available to mobile users, with the announcement of its Mobile Edition.

Users may find more details in, the website lets users pledge their participation during the Firefox Download Day, a map is provided to enumerate how many users from each country have pledged their participation. Even countries as isolated as Myanmar and North Korea have users who pledged their participation. This serves as an indication of how diverse and far reaching Firefox has become on the virtual world.

Firefox 3, the revision of Firefox 2, the award winning browser, will soon be available to over 180 million users of its previous versions. Firefox is just one of the many browser applications that have set out to improve the performance, aesthetics and overall usage of their browsers. Internet Explorer 8 is now on its beta phase, several users have been reported to be pleased with its performance. Safari 3 has released a public beta, though it apparantly still has many bugs to work out. Opera, another one of the browsers to have joined the releasing fray has released its latest version, version 9.5, on June 12, 2008.

Millions upon millions of users worldwide eagerly await the new version of Firefox to grace their computers as to what they expect to be the Gran Paradiso that the community envisions. Will they break the world record? Will it once again be the best browser of the pack? We can only wait and see what lies ahead.
