June 17 is Firefox Download Day 2008

I mentioned a couple weeks ago about Mozilla’s intent to set a world record for the most software downloads in a day with the upcoming launch of the Firefox 3 web browser. Well, the date has finally been set. Firefox Download Day 2008 (and the associated final release of Firefox 3) will be on June 17—next Tuesday.

Mark your calendars. This will be a great, free way for you to support an excellent open source software project and, while you’re at it, download a great web browser. I’ve been using the betas and release candidates of Firefox 3 for months now; this thing is rock solid.
