Firefox 3: Join the chat

We're all new (more or less) to Firefox 3. Here's a place newbies can share their experiences and support each other.

The non-beta, non-release-candidate, real version of Firefox 3 is launching today. It's an important product: The browser is not just a frame for static Web pages anymore, and hasn't been for a long time. The browser is a platform for Web applications. For a growing proportion of users and developers, the browser is more fundamental to their use of technology than the operating system.

So I am not surprised by the interest in this new version of Firefox, and I will not be surprised at all if Mozilla meets its goal of pushing out 1 million downloads of the product. That is, if Mozilla can keep its servers up and running.

I've opened a Meebo chat room below for people experimenting with the new Firefox today. If you want to connect with other folks in real time about your experiences with the download or the product itself, drop in and chat.

Update on the chat room: Meebo has a limit of 80 users per room, but it automatically creates overflow rooms beyond that. So if you join the chat now, you'll probably find yourself in "Firefox 3 Newbies #4" or something similar.
