    yep! i think Mozilla will be prepared though. its been dugg so there may be some server crashes. even if they do it shows how large the Firefox community is and so is a good thing.

    read the link. when Mozilla releases Firefox 3 in June they will send an email with a download link to everyone that has pledged.

    no pirating, but they may release an alternate BitTorrent download to ease the servers which is completely legal.

    im waiting to find out if Firefox 3 for Mac OS X will be released too… anyone know?

    Awesome.

    I've pledged. I don't use FireFox as my main browser but I'll download FireFox 3 non-the-less... even if I end up reverting to FireFox two in the end.

    It's a good cause :D

    I'm in

    FF is a top notch OpenSource project!

    I use FF on all my Linux boxes, at school(most of the PCs have FF), and I've been using FF 3 beta more in OS X, although normally I use Safari(in the past I used FF...so its been on and off)

    I pledged too. My house currently has 2 Macs and 3 PC's so I guess each will get an individually downloaded copy:D
