Coming Soon to a Firefox near you.
Some items that didn’t make it (at least not yet):
This plastic version actually has more doom in it than the real deal which has been missing since it got misplaced.

Celebrate Fourth of July with this special plushie version of the Patriot Socko, saviour of Sockos. Comes equipped with a sweet hat and a flag.

|Sacred Tribal Sword
The inhabitants of the deepest parts of the magical forest regard this sword as one of their most sacred relics. The bones in the hilt are said to be bones from the first tribe elder.

This shield is excellent for blocking, but few exist in the world.
We may recycle them as other items though 😉

That is the number of people who, on June 18, 2008 downloaded Firefox 3 after its launch that morning. Firefox 3 now holds the Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours!
Thanks to the support of the always amazing Mozilla community, we now hold a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours. On June 18, 2008 8,002,530 people downloaded Firefox 3 and are now enjoying a safer, smarter and better Web. Source: Spread Firefox
Total downloads stand at over 28.4 million!!
Despite the initial load causing the Mozilla servers to fail x.x there was still over 8 million downloads of Firefox 3 in the 24hours after it was released. As one would expect most were from the USA where there was over 2 million downloads alone. The only regions not to download were: French Guiana, Guinea-bissau, North Korea, South Georgia And The South Sandwich Islands, Svalbard And Jan Mayen, Timor-leste & Western Sahara 😦
It will be a few days before we know the exact number that were within the 24 hours as it has to be reviewed by Guinness to check it is valid.
Reasons to use Firefox 3:
- It’s More Secure: Malware Protection, Secure add-on updates (though this will bar some legit ones like Neopets toolbar), Anti-virus integration & more
- It’s Easier to Use
- It’s More Personal
- It has Improved Performance: Speed, Memory Usage & Reliability have all been improved.
I’m running Firefox 3 right now, as it is much quicker going between pages than my Firefox 2 ever was. However not all my add-ons, which it automatically brings over with everything else when you install, do not work with Firefox 3. At least the important ones like AdBlock Plus and NoScript are amoung the ones that do work.
