After several release candidates and many betas, the latest of popular open-source browser Firefox is ready for prime time. Firefox 3 is scheduled to launch this Tuesday, and they hope to set a world download record that same day. Notable new features include the Mozilla-dubbed Awesome Bar, which is a revamped URL bar, a new theme that automatically changes depending on your OS, Smart Bookmarks which show your most visited pages, tagging built-in to bookmarks, and the ability to download add-ons from the add-ons window. There are also many tweaks under the hood that most users won't notice, such as a new version of Gecko, the rendering engine, which is faster than in Firefox 2.

So this Tuesday is the mysterious "Download Day" I've been reading about on the Firefox website? I'm going to download Firefox 3 to see what it's like but I don't think it will be on Tuesday.

Yep, I'm looking forward to it, but the "Download Day" schtick is a bit of a grasp IMO. Firefox can rest on its own laurels.

I'm trying to help set one right now but Mozilla's server are getting slammed. I keep getting timeouts and "Connection Interrupted". :(

I can't even connect to their site, the site isn't loading for me, probably because its getting jammed and even if it was loading it would take longer than usual.

I still didnt see the webpage change yet. would downloading from count?

No, it's still not up.

Update: Apparently it's half up.
