Firefox 3.0 was supposed to drop today. As you may recall, the Mozilla team wanted to break a download record with this release. I guess they promoted this contest a little too well because everybody and their Grandma decided to download it at the same time and the mozilla servers have yet to recover.
Some people were not all happy with the communities heckling of Mozilla for their FAIL, but I think it’s all in good fun.
Just got this email from “Firefox Download Day” and the link actually worked. Probably just a fluke:
Today you’ll make history with Firefox
Are you ready to make history? Are you ready to set a World Record? Today is Download Day. To become part of the official Guinness World Record you must download Firefox 3 by 17:00 UTC on June 18, 2008, or roughly 24 hours from now.
