Firefox 3 – Download Day

Today is Firefox 3 Download Day! Mozilla are hoping to set a Guinness World Record for most software downloads in 24 hours. At the time of writing, over 1.2 million people have pledged to download Firefox 3 on the Download Day! This is a first attempt of this record, so there is no number to […]

rel-tag-spaces dilemma
