Probably not, but it’s still interesting → Because being a single mum with an autistic child isn’t hard enough 13 replies on “Firefox 3 due later today” Yes, because there isn’t actually a previous record holder to beat. Haha, brilliant. I need to invent me a world record category. So what’s with the “Help Firefox set a World Record!”, then? Surely they can set it regardless of our help. From the PRs: “Surprisingly there isn’t a record set. Working with Guinness, the target has been set at 1.6 million but Mozilla is actually aiming to secure in the region of 5 million downloads in one day.” If they don’t get their servers sorted they won’t get any. All Firefox and Mozilla domains are timing out. It actually works with RBS digital banking. Yeah, has done for a while. And FireFTP (in-browser FTP) finally got an update yesterday, which makes life much easier. It’s a very good browser; dunno how you’re finding it but on my macbook pro it’s much faster than FF2. It does seem faster on the imac. It is bloody ugly though with the dark grey tabs. Proto’s a bit lighter, and of course there are plenty of other themes out there. Yeah, didn’t get a chance to look. it is faster than FF2 on the PC, But dosen’t work too well with skinning apps (Stardock Windowblinds) Menus go all weird, no text etc. My favourite theme (Whitehart) doesn’t work any more :( Trying to find a replacement…. I tried out Proto but found it to be still a bit dark, Sky was just rubbish, and Aeon is a little bit too 10.1. I\’ve settled on Full Flat https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6971 which is almost comedic in its minimalism but takes up next to no space.
