Firefox 3 is here!

Posted by ClifNotes, Jun 2008, permalink Web Browser

 

I have recently made the switch to the newest Firefox browser. I have no major complaints and I'm enjoying the new features and the faster page loading. My favorite feature is the new "awesome bar". It's the address bar in any other browser, but it adds a fast search of your most recent web surfing and your bookmarks. That alone saves me tons of time.

 

You can get the new browser at:

If you aren't sure you'll like it, try out this portable version. If you don't like it, you can delete the program folder and it'll be gone for good.
