Panic! Firefox 3 is beyond reach
Maybe this should have been spread out a little; it seems that it isn’t just us who can’t download the latest edition of Firefox. Even TechCrunch is unable to download Firefox and they are even receiving the old Firefox 2 download page. This reminds us of when Amazon went down, as we are now receiving a “Http/1.1 Service Unavailable” error.
As we type at this very moment we are now receiving the Firefox 2 download page.
Firefox, you disappoint me.
“The outpouring of interest and enthusiasm around Firefox 3 has been overwhelming (literally!). Our servers are currently feeling the burn and should be back to normal shortly. Download day will officially commence once the site goes live. The 24 hours period will be clocked from that moment. Thanks for your continued support.”
What exactly were they expecting? It really dosn’t take a genius to realise that they had created an extremely large amount of buzz. Well, never mind, it hasn’t gone down how Firefox would have liked, but after 3 years of waiting, the latest Firefox edition is here. It certainly has a nice feel about it.
