Firefox 3 to be released on June 17 . . . a field guide.

Firefox 3 promises to be a great release. I do hope all the plugins and addons we enjoy using are ready for it.

Debbie Richardson has written a great field guide for Firefox 3 with all it’s improvements itemized.

From the guide, one of the most notable improvements: “Firefox 3 is the fastest, slimmest version of Firefox yet. Speed tests are showing a 2-4x improvement over Firefox 2 and 9x over Internet Explorer 7. Memory usage tests measure that Firefox 3 is 2x more efficient than Firefox 2 and 4.7x more efficient than IE7. There’s been a tremendous focus on performance for this release, and an incredible amount of effort has gone in to achieving these numbers.
