    Today?!?!?!? Don't know where you've seen the actual download of version 3, but I can't find it. It still comes with version 2.0..etc.

    I just finished downloaded version 3, it is a release candidate at this time. It took quite awhile to download a 7MB file, so they must be stressing their system today. John

    Its impossible to get it, too many trying I suppose. All I get is timed out

    I had followed Tony's link, which let me sign up and then they sent me an e-mail and I used the link in it to get to the download. John

    Well, I am not trying to set a world record, but I might set a record for longest time connecting to a site without timing out, or probably would have if I had not tired of the wait for the US site. I will try again after my dog's vet appointment.

    Couldn't hit the website after 6pm here but the email with download link worked and I had it within a minute.

    Pleased so far with version 3 although I guess most of the differences are under the hood.

    Well, I am downloading Firefox 3.0 right now. I gave up trying to make a connection this morning. When I used the "Check for Updates" from Firefox Help, twice I received the message that no updates were available, although I had v. 2.014. So I went direct to the site and started the download without trouble. Next will be Thunderbird, which is the Mozilla mail program, which I use.

    Re: Download Day - Set a world record

    Managed to download this, yesterday night. Installed it. Runs. But is it faster?
    Don't know. One thing I hate are those "verbose" lines when clicking on the "address area". Why should it say "Garritan HomePage" when I already know this? Anybody knowing how to get rid of those extra lines?

    Is it saver? Don't know. Is it better? Same answer. It seems to me that this is one giant hoax to get attention... and they got it.
