Mozilla has released Firefox 3 Beta 3.

Get it from here: Download Firefox 3 Beta 3

They have made some remarkable improvements over Firefox 2.You might think, on one hand there are people who work so hard to make an already a state of the art software even better and on other side you have MS. Any ways lets not get into it.

New features and changes in this milestone include:

  • Improved security features such as: better presentation of website identity and security including support for Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates, malware protection, stricter SSL error pages, anti-virus integration in the download manager.
  • Improved ease of use through: easier add-on discovery and installation, improved download manager search and progress indication in the status bar, resumable downloading, full page zoom, and better integration with Windows Vista, Mac OS X and Linux.
  • Richer personalization through: one-click bookmarking, smart bookmark folders, location bar that uses an algorithm based on site visit recency and frequency (called “frecency”) to provide better matches against your history and bookmarks for URLs and page titles, ability to register web applications as protocol handlers, and better customization of download actions for file types.
  • Improved platform features such as: new graphics and font rendering architecture, JavaScript 1.8, major changes to the HTML rendering engine to provide better CSS, float-, and table layout support, native web page form controls, colour profile management, and offline application support.
  • Performance improvements such as: better data reliability for user profiles, architectural improvements to speed up page rendering, over 350 memory leak fixes, a new XPCOM cycle collector to reduce entire classes of leaks, and reductions in the memory footprint.

If you dint upgrade to Beta 2 (like me,for addons compatibility issue) earlier,upgrade now and you wont regret,though you might miss some of your add ons.I upgraded to Beta 3 on Vista.Though im writing this on ver 2 on XP. But one this is sure,working on FF3 is a treat.I found that on just one day of using FF 3.So if you have a dual boot machine try FF 3 on one of the OS.
