While FireFox 3 RC1 has been receiving praise widely, I rather wait for the final version which is expected mid- to late-June. I’ve been looking forward to this release a lot primarily in hope that this version resolves the memory leak problems in the current version that makes the browser very sluggish at times and even prone to frequent crashes. I’ve even had to resort to using *gasp* Internet Explorer at times.

Meanwhile, the Mozilla Foundation is promoting the upcoming release by attempting a Guinness World Record for the most software download in 24 hours during Download Day. I didn’t need a request for a world record to make the pledge (2,611 people have pledged so far). Go make a pledge and return later to download your copy of the latest version of the browser. The official date for the launch of FireFox 3 hasn’t been announced yet because they are preparing for the release of RC2 this Tuesday.
