* Get the word out; tell your friends, your neighbors, your grandma, anyone and everyone to participate in Download Day.

The download day is not yet fixed but it would be in this June. The link of the Firefox image is for everyone to make a pledge that she would download Firefox browser on the day it is released. At the time of this posting, 580,195 pledges have been made. I just made my pledge making me the 580,196th person to make a pledge (not sure about this)
Firefox decided not to leave anyone behind. Firefox 3 can be downloaded in 45 languages with download links for windows, mac and linux users.
Why should you install Firefox 3? It is because
1. The browser has malware protection which warns users of harmful sites.
2. It shows a clearer and stricter error pages when Firefox encounters an invalid SSl certificate.
3. There is an integration of anti-virus software. The anti-virussoftware would check for virus on executable programs ie programs that ends in .exe files.
