Firefox 3.0 Beta 3 released

Gecko 1.9 starts to shine! Firefox 3.0 Beta 3 is here.

As mentioned here earlier , Firefox's next generation browser 3.0 Beta 3 was in 'code freeze' and was going through some bug testing before release for testing.

Late yesterday, Firefox 3 Beta 3 was released for evaluation and bug reporting.

The list of improvements and added features
is now simply mind-boggling and can be found at the Mozilla developer site here .

From what we can tell so far, the memory issues that have been one of the more significant 'issues' have been cured in a test drive last night. We'll be posting more in the coming weeks as, so far, this really appears to be a quantum leap for the project.

Existing beta testers can simply hit 'Help' and 'Check for updates' to install.

IMPORTANT: The current stable release of Firefox is Mozilla advises only developers and beta-testers download their beta software. Be sure and read through the entire page above. There are still some 'known issues' being worked on, and in some cases, the download could overwrite your existing installation of Firefox.
