Doing my part to help Firefox 3 set a World Record.

Download DayAre there times when you wish you had done something amazing, something special, interesting, or even by the seat of your pants? Tomorrow is one of those days in technology when you want to be a part of something big maybe even huge.

Mozilla’s new Firefox 3 browser is ready for release tomorrow June 17th. Mozilla hopes to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours. They have been working on a new version of the popular browser for a while. Honestly version 2.0 didn’t need much help it’s stable, and fast, but progression is the name of the game in technology.

This event reminds me of when the latest record would come out and I would watch the stats to see who was the top selling Album of the week. I had to ask myself if I even cared about this launch and this attempt at a world record.

I’ll give you 5 reasons why I’m overly interested:

  1. I want to support the Open Source movement. (Free Software)
  2. Firefox helps me surf the internet without harm from IE(Internet Explorer) exploits.
  3. In years past this browser has beat other browsers (IE, Opera, Etc) in testing over and over.
  4. Cool features in Firefox let me customize my browser, and adds plug-ins to extend the functionality without alot of time and effort.
  5. I wanna be a part of history once again.

My last check on the number of people who have pledged to join this attempt was at 1.34 Million and growing check here.

So if you want a better browser then the auto installed Internet Explorer join me in helping the open source community and possibly setting a World Record on Tuesday June 17th 2008.
