There are "release candidates" of Ff3 available for download as public betas. The Google toolbar is not yet compatible for the beta releases:

"The Google Toolbar is currently available for release versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0+ and Mozilla Firefox 1.5+. Please note that it isn't currently compatible with Internet Explorer 8 beta or Firefox 3 beta."

wow... but why do they have an ff 3 beta when they should be concentrating on improving ff2?

--dont think i worded that right:
i mean, 2.0.0.14's such a small number to skip to 3 from

Hi TechniMan So what do you think so far ? What have you discovered that makes you say "homina homina homina" :flowers: !! ??

Where did you download it from ?
Do you miss the Google Search Bar ?

Would you like some useful links that I've found ?

Hi nat,
You can download FF3 from here:http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-rc.html There is multiple lanugages you can choose from.
I saw a tutorial on Mozilar fox before, nows there is another one you might want to take a look:
It tells you about some of the new features of FF3, I don't use FF3 so I don't know much about it.

Regards,
Extremeboy

The reason they jumped to FF3 is because it represents a significant development of FF rather than simply a few incremental improvements to FF2.
