Download FireFox and help set a world record!

FireFox 3 is not just cool and safe, it’s also practical and safer than other browser alternatives (most notably IE on Windows.) The malware threat online now (especially for folks still running Windows OS computers) is HUGE and growing. According to Mike Schroepfer, vice president of engineering at Mozilla:

…”It’s an arms race between the good guys and the bad guys. This is not scare tactics or boogie man kind of stuff. “We have seen a huge uptick in malware attacks because they are financially motivated,” he said. “This is billions of dollars a year. There are clear incentives for people to do this because they make money so you need some good guys on your side to block them out.” Included in Firefox 3.0 are malicious software spotters that tell users when they are on a website that has been compromised. A red box will pop up in the middle of the screen warning users of the danger.

    I have been running Firefox 3 Beta on Ubuntu Linux for a couple months now. Very smooth and stable, except for one thing. The bookmarks in my bookmarks toolbar don’t show up on the toolbar. However, the Diigo bookmarks toolbar is nice. It has a few other new features, but most of newness is about security. It is far more secure than Internet Explorer. Time to update my laptop’s browser to FF3.
