Mozilla Attempts to Set World Record with New Firefox

Mozilla, the maker of the popular (and by far the best) Web browser, Firefox, has released the latest version and is attempting to set a new world record for most downloads in 24 hours.

Unfortunately, my attempts at downloading the new Firefox 3.0 have resulted in "corrupt file" errors. I have to wonder if this is a real technical error or Mozilla's "foolproof plan" to ensure they make it into the Guinness book of World Records.

Yes, I suppose I am cynical; this is the Internet, people.

Regardless, I can't recommend Firefox any higher; like I said, it is - by far - the best browser available anywhere and completely customizable. The very first thing I noticed when I switched to Firefox was the webpages: they actually looked right! Where some colors had been green, they were orange; where some titles had been teeny-tiny, then SUPER-LARGE on mouseover, they were just a different font! It was truly crazy!

I could go on and on about Firefox, but it really is the best browser out there and you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Besides, The Weirding is designed under Firefox and designed to be viewed under Firefox, so... you know, there's that.

Simply fantastic! The features added are not necessarily obvious at first, but the more you do and play-around, the more you will find.

Google Analytics doesn't show up under it, though.

The problem seeing certain pages, such as Google Analytics, turned out to be due to a plug-in (add-on) and took a few days to find. The add-on has since been updated, but I am leaving it disabled for now.

The add-on was the TOR button.
