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.

Yuck! FF3 was severely overhyped. New OSX skin is horrible, and if you change it, the scrollbar disappears.

Now what's wrong with the theme? Mac users complained that it looked like a Windows application but now that it looks more like Safari, people don't like it either. Uggggh.

I happen to like the way it renders pages. Anything else is secondary but the anti-phishing and anti-malware are nice touches also, since Safari has neither.

Also, I wonder about the Windows version. I can see that it's changed but the performance seems about the same. The Mac OS X version is so improved, it's difficult to believe that a single line of code has been left untouched.

Thanks to all the developers responsible.
