Mozilla & Gecko clones Any minute now, the Mozilla Foundation will officially release the third incarnation of their successful Firefox web browser - the browser that cracked Internet Explorer's monopoly and forced Microsoft to improve IE. Mozilla aims to set a world record in most software downloaded in 24 hours with Firefox 3. Update: It's out there, boys and girls. Update II: And the Firefox 3 page is up too.

Looks like the only thing they broke was their server. ;)

Persistence is the key. Geez.

It took a "long" time to download, hitting a low of about 12 KB/sec. as reported by Firefox 2.0.0.14 on my machine and I don't remember seeing it about 37 KB/sec.

They may get the record, but they might create a lot of bad PR in the meantime if people think that the burdened servers in any way correspond to the quality of the software.
