Today is Download Day


So it has been called to this day (17 of June), in which Mozilla Google Plans to win the Guinness prize for the most downloads of Firefox, in its 3 version.

So if you already use it, it is a good time to update ... and if you are still using Internet Explorer, maybe it is a good time to try it. As I commented previously, My stats, Indicate that 270 of every 1000 visitors to this site use Firefox.

Among the advantages that Firefox 3 promises are some new pirouettes, and possibly improvements to existing ones.

Some productivity Very good is the control of downloads, you can pause or resume whenever you want, it is also very good to zoom both image and full page and restorer session when it closes unexpectedly.

The use universal Will be the most points you have earned, as it is available in more than 40 languages.


En tiempo... it is to prove it, I feel it faster, especially in dynamic pages or with a lot of data download such as maps ... I suppose that the developments with jscript and ajax should take advantage of it. For now I have not hung up and I feel a better performance.

The Mozilla strategy Google Is being very aggressive in this field, it finally seems that with its dominance over the Internet will give a blow to Microsoft in the use of browsers.
