    Firefox 3 (FF2/3)

    Just saw a review of FF3 on the register. Is this a brand new beta, or is it ready for prime time?

    The Register says that it is a release candidate. This follows one or more betas, and may well become the final version - assuming that they are happy with its quality and it is (fairly) bug-free. But it is possible that there may be more than one 'release candidate'...

    Tony will, no doubt, give a more-informed view.

    Re: Firefox 3 (FF2/3)

    Firefox 3 has not yet been released. Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1 is available, it is a public preview release intended for developer testing and community feedback.

    For more details see Mozilla Developer News - Firefox 3 Release Candidate now available for download

    Note that if you install this release candidate and want to keep Firefox 2 you will need to create a new profile for Firefox 3, do not use the same profile folder for Firefox 2 and 3. Firefox stores user data in profiles, if you use the same profile for Firefox 2 and 3 it can cause problems. For details about how to create profile see Managing profiles.
