Firefox 3 Released!

The latest version of my favorite web browser is now available, Firefox 3! It looks like there are a lot of improvements and if they can come through on their promises, it should really make a big difference when it comes to web browsing.

Here's a snippet from their FAQ page:

Q: What's new in Firefox 3?
A: Firefox 3 is the fastest, leanest, most powerful browser Mozilla has ever released. With over 15,000 improvements, including the revolutionary smart location bar, malware protection, and extensive under the hood work, Firefox 3 delivers the Web without compromise.

Q: I keep hearing about the "Awesome Bar" - what is that?
A: The Awesome Bar is the affectionate name for the new Firefox 3 Smart Location Bar. The new location bar learns as you use it, adapting to your preferences and making your browsing more personal. When you type in text, the auto-complete function displays possible matching sites from your browsing history, bookmarks, and tags. This makes it easy to scan the list and quickly identify the site you want to visit. Our beta testers started calling it the Awesome Bar and the name stuck!

Q: Firefox 3 feels blazing fast even though I have a zillion tabs open. How does it do that?
A: Firefox 3 represents nearly three years of development and includes significant performance improvements to run today's most demanding Web applications. Firefox 3 uses significantly less memory and is overall two to four times faster than Firefox 2.
