Firefox 3 June 17th

Firefox 3, final version, will be out June 17.
If you don't use many extensions and/or themes, and you are running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, go ahead and download and install it.

If you are running an older version of Windows, you won't be able to use Firefox 3.

If you do use a lot of extensions/add-ons, then you might want to wait until your favourites are updated to run on Firefox 3 (unless you know how to hack an extension to change its maximum version setting)

There are lots of improvements in the new version of Firefox, especially improved performance and memory handling.

There are many extensions that have NOT yet been updated to work in Firefox 3. So, my advice is to check the add-ons page first to see if the extensions in questions have been updated or not for version 3. There are a few things about version 3 that are quite different, so, if you hack the max version in the code for the extension, it still might not work properly.
