Firefox 3 launching on june 17th

Official date has been set! The Mozilla Developers News blog has made an announcement earlier today, saying "After more than 34 months of active development, and with the contributions of thousands, we’re proud to announce that we’re ready. It is our expectation to ship Firefox 3 this upcoming Tuesday, June 17th"

Yes, there is a small possibility of a major bug being discovered, like the one found in the Mac version of Firefox 3, due to which a third release candidate was put out. Hopefully, everything will go smoothly and we’ll have the browser on next Tuesday.

If you are participating in the "Download Day" campaign, then don’t forget to download and install Firefox 3 on Tuesday. Mozilla is attempting to set the Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours.

It’s not just Firefox, but Opera users have a reason to rejoice as well. Opera software has announced the availability of Opera 9.5. After months of beta, Opera 9.5 is finally released. Along with the new look and feel, Opera 9.5 also features a new rendering engine for better performance, and several security measures for safe and secure browsing. You can download Opera 9.5 or read the Changelog.
