,----[ Quote ]
| Since launch last week in excess of 17.3 million downloads of Firefox 3 have 
| taken place. 


My Experiences with Firefox 3.0 on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X

,----[ Quote ]
| Loads up in three seconds, a real rocket! Firefox 3 integrates with your GTK+ 
| theme, so you’ve got some cool visual consistency going on which is actually 
| an exception in Linux.   



Firefox 3.0 boosts Mozilla's market share

,----[ Quote ]
| That's up 0.76 per cent from the 18.41 per cent it posted for May.
| [...]
| Based on trends, Vizzaccaro earlier this month projected that Firefox would
| reach the 20 per cent share mark sometime in July.



Guiness World Record Certificate in your name - Firefox 3

,----[ Quote ]
| The record is 15,067,570 downloads (15 Million). Country wise, USA tops the
| list with a whooping 4 million + downloads. Surprisingly, sans the US,
| relatively small countries like Iran and France clocked more downloads than
| its larger counterparts like India and China.
| If you are one of the people who downloaded Firefox on June 17th, then
| congratulations !!; You are a part of the Guiness Book of World Records. And
| the people at Firefox are ever too grateful to forget your valuable
| contribution.


Iceweasel goes 3.0 too

,----[ Quote ]
| Debian's "Iceweasel" build of Firefox 3.0 is out.


Inside Firefox 3's Latest Beta Update, Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Integration with Linux has also been kicked up a notch so that default icons, 
| buttons and menu styles in Firefox now use the native GTK (The Gimp Toolkit) 
| theme.  


Need FF2 in Hardy? Try GNU’s IceCat.

,----[ Quote ]
| IceCat is “the GNU version of the Firefox browser.” Basically, the GNU guys
| took Mozilla’s code, and compiled it without using the “proprietary” parts,
| meaning the Logo and the name, among other things.


Firefox 3: rocking on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| A few people have been noticing how good our support on Linux has gotten 
| during the Firefox 3 development cycle and I thought I would post to try and 
| point out some of the good stuff that we have coming down the pipe.   


Firefox 3.0 Beta 2 Is A Win For Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla has released the latest beta of Firefox 3 today, and the Linux 
| efforts behind it are starting to show even more. This release, being a beta, 
| is surprisingly stable. Here’s the killer that makes this beta release 
| amazing: true GTK support.   


Personas from Mozilla Labs give Firefox a sleek coat

,----[ Quote ]
| I probably won't use Personas much myself since I greatly prefer the 
| unadulterated GTK look in Firefox 3, but the addon is very intriguing from a 
| technical standpoint. The way that Personas takes Firefox's Internet 
| capabilities and leverages theme to bring dynamic content to the Firefox  
| chrome layer is very creative and it reflects a lot of possibilities that I 
| had never previously considered.    


Update on the Firefox 3 Linux Theme

,----[ Quote ]
| Work on the new linux theme for Firefox 3 is progressing nicely due to a very 
| active group of contributers. To match the operating system’s theme, 
| Firefox’s navigation toolbar will use native GTK icons.   



Firefox Set Free in IceWeasel

,----[ Quote ]
| One possible outcome is that Debian developers just rename Firefox to
| something else. Another possibility is that they just use GNU's
| IceWeasel.


Iceweasel released from its cage

,----[ Quote ]
| There are still a few branding issues to sort out, but I'll try to get
| them fixed over the next couple of days.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
