Firefox 1.0 released

Posted in: Drivel

Woohoo, my favorite browser officially had its 1.0 release earlier today. It's time to party! The last month has seen a money raising campaign operated from Spread Firefox to take out a full page NY Times ad for Firefox. They were after $50,000. They got $250,000.

With 5million people downloading the 1.0 Preview last time you can imagine the servers are completely caned right now with an official release. However there is at least one site that's still serving over 200KB/s: found via the Switch to Firefox site.

Get Firefox:

If you're still using IE you're really missing out. 1,000+ testimonials seem to agree. Don't be left behind!

Firefox sites

The first three are official sites so are suffering under download load at the moment.

Firefox at - the original Firefox homepage
Get Firefox - a simple site you can pass on to your friends
Spread Firefox - Firefox campaign site
Switch to Firefox - borrowing Apple's "Switch" advertising theme with plenty of info for new and potential users
Mozilla Release Party - any excuse to party! UK locations
