Browsers

As most of you know today is the firefox 3 download day.

Mozilla is trying to set the record for most downloads in 24 hours.

But for once the Ubuntu devs are extremly fast in updating their repositories.

You can already use the update manager to download and install firefox 3 final.

I thought it would be weeks before it got in.

Together with firefox 3 comes a new kernel (2.6.24-19) and lots of other updates.

That being said, Opera released their new browser (9.5). A .deb package can be downloaded on their website.

Their new “skin” looks awefull on ubuntu, but you can download the old skins from their servers.

    Opera only looks awful if you use the default ubuntu theme ;-)

    I don’t agree with you there.

    I never use the default theme (who does?) and it still looks bad.

    opera was great when I had XP. It sucks on Ubuntu, but firefox is great (which for me sucked on XP).

    guess it is all relative.

    I just noticed. Mozilla is execellent on Ubuntu but messed up on XP. Vice versa goes for opera
