FireFox 3 Download Day

The first ever web browser I used was a Netscape, and from there browsers have grown a lot... Of all the things that happened to the web browsers, the most important (well, at least for me) was the launch of FireFox, a robust and secure browser. It didn’t take much time to take over the heart of netizens, and I believe a good percentage of you use FireFox to browse.
Now, the new version of FireFox is getting ready to hit the market, and they are doing a grassroots level campaign to set a Guinness Book World record of having most downloads on a day.

This blog is to pledge my support to Mozilla download day. If you have used and like the earlier versions of Mozilla, then give this new avatar a try. If you are still a Fox-Virgin, what are you waiting for? Go ahead, pledge and download it on the big day and be a part of history.

Click on the button or any of the link to go to the page and pledge your support now. Click here to read the official blog. Go spread the word.

Download Day - English

Ps: If any of you out there would like to get a FREE CD of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, drop a mail to me. I am giving away FREE CDs (yes, you don’t even have to pay postage if you are inside India) to all those who want to try Ubuntu.

I have used Ubuntu :) I loved it for the time i used it.. and now I have forgotten how to get back to that disc where it is installed... You just reminded me of getting back to it... what sharp and fast it was :) minus my foto editing bit though :(
