You can now download the Firefox 3 beta!
The new version of the popular Firefox browser is available for download here.
According to the Firefox 3 release notes:
Firefox 3 is based on the Gecko 1.9 Web rendering platform, which has been under development for the past 34 months. Building on the previous release, Gecko 1.9 has more than 15,000 updates including some major re-architecting to provide improved performance, stability, rendering correctness, and code simplification and sustainability. Firefox 3 has been built on top of this new platform resulting in a more secure, easier to use, more personal product with a lot more under the hood to offer website and Firefox add-on developers.
In plain English that means it is designed to be faster, more secure and with better features.
