Editor’s note: Mozilla announced Firefox 3 Release Candidate 3 on Wednesday, June 11, 2008 at 3 pm PST. See Mike Beltzner’s comprehensive post on Mozilla Developer News, crossposted below.
This third Firefox 3 Release Candidate is a public preview release intended for developer testing and community feedback. We recommend that you read the release notes and known issues before installing this release.
The third Firefox 3 Release Candidate is now available for download. It contains a single change for Mac OS X users only; there is no change for users running previous Firefox Release Candidate versions on Windows or Linux. Ongoing planning for Firefox 3 can be followed in the minutes of the Firefox 3 Planning Meetings, as well as in mozilla.dev.planning and on irc.mozilla.org in #granparadiso.
You can find out more about the new Features of Firefox 3 in the “What’s New” section of the release notes.
Testers can download the third Firefox 3 Release Candidate builds for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux in over 45 different languages. Developers should also read the Firefox 3 for Developers article on the Mozilla Developer Center.
Note: Please do not link directly to the download site. Instead we strongly encourage you to link to this Firefox 3 Release Candidate announcement so that everyone will know what this milestone is, what they should expect, and who should be downloading to participate in testing at this stage of development.
In an additional Mozilla Developer News post, Mike Beltzner also announces that we anticipate the general release of Firefox 3 to be on this coming Tuesday, June 17.
