Firefox 3 switch (Updated)

Well I have finely made the switch to Firefox 3 on Windows. I have yet to make the switch in Linux or OS X yet but I will shortly.

After some time using the beta I am about ready (not quite) to fully transition over to FF3. Most of my plug-ins now work for FF3 but there are still a few that still don’t. All of my “Must Have” plug-ins now work though. I am happy to say all of my plug-ins work in FF3!

My Plug-ins:

OK so I decided to install MR. Tech Toolkit, sue me… Razz

I have now made the switch to Firefox 3 on all my computers (Mac, Linux, and Windows)!

Firefox 3 RC1 now available!

Thats right Firefox 3 RC1 is out now but only for nightly tester/Minefield users.

Assuming no new issues are found today the build team will start official prep work for Release Candidate 1 (RC1) tomorrow. QA will start their extensive RC1 test pass on Monday. If all goes well we should have the Release Candidate publicly available in late May.

RC1 is intended for wider scale public testing. Our 1.2M+ active beta users will automatically get updated to RC1 when it is released. If no new showstopper issues are found in RC1 it will become Firefox 3 final. If we find any critical issues we will continue to release new Release Candidates until we are ready for final ship.
