Firefox 3 is due for release tomorrow (June 17th), and we are attempting to set a Guinness World Record for most copies of a bit of software downloaded in 24 hours. So far, at least 1.3 million people from around the globe have pledged to download. With Firefox 2’s 1.6 million downloads on its launch day, we can be very sure this time its going to be even more for sure.

With more than 14,000 improvements, Firefox 3 is faster, safer and smarter than before. Firefox 3 sets the innovation bar very high with exciting new features, including one-click bookmarking, the smart location bar and lightning fast performance.

Meebo + Firefox, Its my thing…

Meebo, the IM which I use all the time, to chat with all my friends who are on GTalk, Yahoo, or MSN. And Firefox is what I use in my Linux as well as Vista. And now what I have got for me?

Its a Firefox Extension for Meebo, and this brings much more to my messenger which runs inside Firefox. This new extension adds features like:

  • Automatically sign on to your IM accounts when you launch your browser
  • See your most recent messages in the optional sidebar while you browse the web
  • Get notified when your friends send you an IM so you'll never miss it
  • Drag images and links right onto your sidebar buddy list
  • Alerts when contacts come on-line and go off-line
