    Acutally can we like, wait for the off release?

    from the IMPORTANT NOTE in the folder :

    To be honest, if you’re here from Digg or something similar, we’d really
    rather you waited until 3.0b1 was officially announced, so the servers
    don’t get overloaded and we don’t have a bunch of extra work to do.

    In terms of speedier page loading and simple and effective designs like IE its better than firefox and it supports every media plugin by default but does not have fancy addons much like firefox… So k-meleon is better suited for ppl who wants speedier page loading and the tray loader of k-meleon fires up the browser in less than a second so very cool

  16. Hi
    November 7th, 2007 | 18:07

    K-meleon is what Firefox used to be like; a lightweight, fast browser. Firefox has become far too bloated these days, a fresh install, no plugins and already it’s using up 150,000 memory.

    If K-meleon develops better support for 3rd party plugins, there’ll probably be far more users.

    I’ve not tried Firefox 3 beta but it needs to be at least as fast as Opera/K-meleon/Safari and a much smaller footprint for it to be any good, otherwise it’s going down the path of Nero etc al.

  17. vidhun
    November 7th, 2007 | 18:08

    @hi

    I totally agree with you…Thats why I have now dumped every browser and uses k-meleon only..

  18. November 7th, 2007 | 18:13

    Firefox rules!

    But I won’t try any other release than the stable version. Firefox 3 looks awesome. Thanks for the heads up.

    November 7th, 2007 | 18:15

    It’s as useless as Opera (there, I said it, Opera sucks) until most extensions and themes are ported. Mozilla should care more about backwards compatibility, they’d get more beta testers :/

    Firefox is, by far, the most inferior browser today.

    No web browser is going to be the best for everyone, its all a matter of what you like and what your used to. I used to use opera when it had adds I wanna say it was v7 or v8 and I hated it with a passion, I didnt like netscape or mozilla either but the more I ended up working with Phoenix(now firefox) it grew on me and I ended up with a lot of add ons that I liked thus it sticks even if its a little slower and a little incompatible with a few sites it still works well enough to do what myself and others like.

    I love how in a world where more is better, there’s suddenly a bunch of computer nerds who love the barebone boring software. When it comes to browsers, I’m referring to K-Meleon and Opera.

    Yeah, they’re lightweight, etc., because their functionality is limited. Are you running with 64MB of RAM?

    Firefox is the best of both worlds.

  35. lazyink
    November 7th, 2007 | 19:11

    @Unatco

    1. the download window has been changed,
    2. theres a new warning window when you enter about:config (thats quite amusing),
    3. an applications tab has been added in the options dialog giving you control over what app opens files.
    4. RAM usage is much better now. e.g with 3 tabs open in fox2: 130mb+, using fox3 its down to 70mb.

    found a bug tho.. i installed it, then uninstalled it and went back to 2.0.0.9 (to install nightly tester tools) and i couldn’t start it!

    so stuck using 3beta1 at the mo .. and shes running smooth and quick..

    Is this app better or worse then Halo 3?

  38. lazyink
    November 7th, 2007 | 19:22

    @rob

    not entierly true.. i’m running fox3 with all my extensions..tho i’ll give you it’s a little tricky to restore them.. heres how i did it..

    all you need is ‘nightly tester tools’. install this extension before installing fox3, and then navigate to:

    C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER ACC\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\YOUR PROFILE\extensions\{8620c15f-30dc-4dba-a131-7c5d20cf4a29}

    and then look for the ‘install.rdf’.

    open it in you fav text editor and change the:

    em:maxVersion>3.0a93.0b1

  40. lazyink
    November 7th, 2007 | 19:25

    whoops !! forgot the tags !!

    so u change the ‘em:maxVersion’ in the firefox section from 3.0a9 to 3.0b1.

    then install fox3 and you’ll be able to make all your extensions compatible using the nightly tester tools.

  41. Wankstar
    November 7th, 2007 | 19:27

    So … the question people really are thinking are: Is this better than halo 3? And: Will people be waiting for aXXo release?

    I’m somewhat of an add-on junkie.

    Though all the changes in this version of Firefox looks great, almost none of my installed add-ons work. They are either “Incompatible with Firefox 3.0b1″ or “Does not provide secure updates”, which is something new I suppose.

    Finally scaled images does not look like crap! That’s always been something I dident like with FF.

  54. Thraprod
    November 7th, 2007 | 20:08

    I’ve never run K-Meleon, but I have run Opera and IE7. Both functioned horrendously slowly for me. I’m sure they are for some people, but they had poor performance on my machine. Now, Opera runs faster than anything else on my Windows 2k laptop, but Firefox outperforms on my Xp and Vista Ultimate boxes. As for IE7? Well, it runs, by far, the worst on all my boxes.

  55. SoniKalien
    November 7th, 2007 | 20:13

    I used to be an Opera user but I ditched it in favour of IE7 with the IEPro addon. Heaps better. IE7 is worthless without IE Pro (which is free). IE Pro has mouse guestures, ad blocking and more!

    it’s just another conglomerate trying to portray itself as “David” through various multi million euro publicity firms, when behind Mozilla’s curtain is actually another “Goliath”.
    Stop being a pawn, use what you want; not simply because FireFox is currently “cool” and “indie”.

    Most extension devs won’t update their extensions until the final v3 comes out… anyway, a BETA is only for testers, not for everyday use.

    @James, Cause every release has a nightly… and that’s a test build. These nightly’s are release candidates for the BETA, and until the right RC is made there will be no beta. It’s done so the final product, in this case the BETA experiences only undetected bugs at the main app and not mistakes that a packer might do while packing a nightly. Sometimes it happens!

    IT IS NOT out atm if you follow the links you get this:

    (Hi! You may have been redirected here while looking for the Firefox 3 Beta. We’re sad to say that it’s not actually ready yet, but we’re awfully happy that you stopped by. Read on for more details!)

    At around 4am PST today, the last of the Firefox 3 Beta 1 release candidate builds appeared on our public FTP today. This was mistakenly reported on Digg as the official release of the first Firefox 3 Beta. It’s extremely flattering to get this sort of attention, and we know that it’s motivated by the very best of intentions, but it does cause us three major problems:

    1. The release candidate builds have not been thoroughly tested by our QA group,
    2. we haven’t completed all the steps required for a beta release (see below), and
    3. these builds aren’t being mirrored properly on our servers.

    Before a release candidate is released to the public we let our Quality Assurance team put it through a bunch of tests (if you’d like to participate in this activity, by the way, you’re absolutely welcome to join our Firefox Beta Test Day on Friday), write release notes, and put together a page that appears when someone first runs the beta to help them understand what’s new and how they can give us their feedback. At the same time, our localization teams make the final translation fixes, and our build team generates versions in as many languages as we have ready to go. The final step is to “sign” the builds digitally, authenticating that they came from Mozilla.

    So, if all this needs to be done before a release candidate can actually be handed out to users, why do we put these “release candidate” builds on a public server? Well, because we’re an open source project, and we put all of our builds on public servers.

    For now, we’ve restricted access to the builds by HTTP, meaning that if you click the link in Digg, you’ll see this page instead of the builds. We’ve done this to protect our own bandwidth, and also to limit the distribution of what’s essentially an unfinished product. People can still use FTP clients to get the release candidates, and if they want to help QA test the beta, we encourage people to do so! If not, however, we’d ask you to wait another week or so, at which point we expect to have the final beta release available for public consumption.

    Stay tuned for more detailed timelines and estimates for the official release date of Firefox 3 Beta 1, which should appear here a little later today.

    I used to have firefox on my pc but realise that it is too bloated and not that fast with every new release,likewise same with opera and IE7,k-meleon is fast like they say but i came across a browser which is IE based and faster than k-meleon try google search for ‘the world browser’ using it now and recommended it to my friends all with positive feedback.

    Everyone has their own personal favourite (correct spelling, I’m English), browser. Some like Firefox, like I do, some IE, some K-Meleon….each to his/her own.
    My first was Netscape, was okay, better than any MS browser, and it did a good enough job in it’s day (the 90′s).
    I’ll personally wait for an official release, as I prefer FF to any other browser. Yes it can hog memory, but if you close it down, and restart it, it won’t use as much as before, don’t know why just does, don’t really care.
    All browsers at some stage steal from others, IE7 and tabs? So eventually they’ll probably all end up looking and operating the same.

    If one tried to click on http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2007-11-07-03-firefox3.0b1/ You will get redirected to http://developer.mozilla.org/devnews/index.php/2007/11/07/were-happy-that-you-digg-us-but/ explaining it is Not the Beta 1 test release but a test release candidate.

    The nightlies themselves that happen each day (mozilla1.8 and Trunk) are NOT Release Candidate builds as the nightly builds are automatic each day (unless your using a tinderbox build which is hourly about depending on the OS and box) whether new checkins or patches gets put in or not. Look at the Mozilla1.8.0 Branch nightlies as they are automatic each day (being labelled as 1.5.0.13pre ever since 1.5.0.12 release) and yet Firefox 1.5.0.13 never happened as the 1.5.0.12 was the last official release of Firefox 1.5.

    The above nightly ftp links are Not the 3.0 Beta 1 releases.

    The 3.0 Beta 1 test release will be in below link when it is out. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/granparadiso/

    I have used easily over 2000 nightlies (Currently both BonEcho 2.0.0.* and Minefield Trunk) so I am not new to using nightlies as by the time it gets to beta stage for the release they are boring and I would focus much more on the next version development if I have not yet.

    I’m very happy with FireFox. IE, no matter how hard it tries, is just a slow, memory-hungry heap of junk. I’ve not tried K-meleon, but Opera, for all is good intentions is just not flexible enough.

    For me, Firefox, with mouse gestures, fasterfox, adblock, and 1 or 2 other useful little add-ons is just perfect. Mind you, I’m in no real rush to upgrade to v.3 if there isn’t any support for addons.

Best way to figure out which browser is best for you is to test some of them. I’m also waiting to test stabile version of FF

    If you like firefox you will love flock. you can use all ff extensions and great for rss and social networking. I’ve been using FF for yrs and this really took me away. Try it out.

    Oh and don’t say speed. If you have DSL or Cable modem… Does that 1 billionth of a trillionth of a second really matter? It does? Then upgrade your computer!

    You obviously dont know what you are doing, IE is the nastiest browser on the internet, Firefox and opera have billions more possibilitys than it, Firefox now has support for Apng as i stated, which stands for animated png, Which is so much cleaner than gifs.
    Another thing is firefox just looks and feels better than IE ever could

    the most important thing is that a browser displays the html correctly. while ff, opera and other smaller browsers seem to care about it m$ still does not obey the rules completely. Although the ie7 is far better than ie6 it is still a bad browser.

    Not supporting one or the other but if you are using 150 M of mem then I would have a look at your setup. Something is maybe not quite right, seems a little excessive.

    I never said I was a developer in any way…. As I figure You misread my use of the word “development” as I was never implying I was a developer but have been one to follow and giving feedback and bug reports of the nighties like many others for a long time so regressions and such can be fixed sooner and things can progress faster. Something that may be as fast as minutes or hours for checkins to fix the regression that often took days or weeks to get fixed back when it was say Firebird 0.6 or 0.7 when testers of nightlies started to be more common and testing to be more organized. If you had posted this on the independent MZ forum, you would have people correcting You and not me and if you had attacked me there you would not have lasted long if you continued.

    The original end-of-life date for Firefox was April 24th 2007 but they decided to make support for Firefox 1.5 to be able to do Major update to Firefox 2.0.0.4 hence the main reason for Firefox 1.5.0.12 as it almost ended at 1.5.0.11. I was just using the 1.5.0.13pre nightlies as an example to show the nightlies are automated whether patches/checkins have gone it or not.

    I think You are the bit confused one about the long history of nightlies and how the RC terms get used with RC’s of Beta’s and Final as before it was a little less confusing for users like you… but you seem so sure of yourself so whatever…

    I as others were pointing out the links that Yankee posted was not actually out yet as was not the Beta 1 test release as he said. The Beta 1 test release is still not out yet as the ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/3.0b1-candidates/ you mentioned (which came about after I posted otherwise I would have linked to it) are where to find the RC’s of the Beta 1, not the 2007-11-07-03-firefox3.0b1/ for RC1 example. Mozilla just wants to have a decent Beta 1 test release for people who are too scared to try a Minefiled Trunk nightly but yet are adventurous enough to want to see what Firefox 3.0 could be like even though the Beta 1 is still not for the public of new users or those who think the current 2.0.0.* release is the latest.

    When I said “The above nightly ftp links are Not the 3.0 Beta 1 releases.” I was referring to the links Yankee posted and not to you as they were not where you properly go for a RC of Beta1 nor was it the Beta 1 test release itself.

    http://quality.mozilla.org/en/node/784

    I guess you hardly know about the history of nightlies because you say you have not really used them yourself or am I misreading you there… as you certainly misunderstood.

    The 3.0 Beta 1 test release will most likely be in below link when it is out. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/granparadiso/

    I can’t believe how stupid you people are. Uploading a publicly available nightly build of an open source program to rapidshare. Do you do that every night? Presumably for those masses of Mozilla alpha testers out there that never heard about FTP (and then complain about “no new theme” and “my extensions don’t work”). I’m sure they will write really qualified bug reports and submit lots of patches.
