Firefox Download Day & Opera 9.5

In case you've been living under a rock, today is Firefox Download Day. Download your copy of the new Firefox 3 before 3am tomorrow morning (Thu 19/Jun).

Sure, the Guinness World Record attempt is mostly a gimmick, but it does have a positive side: widespread adoption of modern browsers makes the web a better place.

Naturally, Firefox is not my primary browser, but it's good to have on hand for sites that haven't been developed well, or for those times when I just want a different browser.

And in case you haven't been paying attention, Opera - the world's most advanced web browser - is also making great strides. Opera 9.5 was released last week, with:

- Quick Find, with full text search of visited pages.
- Speed Dial, mouse gestures, content blocking and more.
- Opera Link, to sync bookmarks and settings across computers and mobiles.
- Faster rendering and better standards support.
- Fraud and malware protection.
