For some geeks, this was going to be a bigger day than even the release of the iPhone 3G. It was going to be the day where we were going to be able to download Firefox 3.0, the latest incarnation of The Only Browser That Matters, and the major window through which we view the virtual world.
For someone like me, whose entire life was changed 15 years ago when I first saw the .9 beta version of Netscape, a major new Web browser is like manna. Especially one as good as Firefox. And I’m not alone. I’m really really not alone. In fact, I’m so not alone that I am unable to to reach the Mozilla site to actually upgrade.
