Firefox 3 Alpha 1 Release
I installed it yesterday and gave it a whirl. What happened? I ended up uninstalling it and going back to 2.0. Unless you are a complete hardcore web designer and feel the need to help Mozilla out, then I would stay away from this release. My experience with it was that it did not load CSS from certain websites so I was left viewing the plain HTML. Since most sites are designed using CSS these days I was stuck viewing sites that looked like they were made in the early 90's. Another bad thing about the release is that it installs over Firefox 2. In my opinion it should have been installed along side of 2.0 so that I would have the option to run 2.0 or 3.0. Also the alpha release did not have the "Firefox" logo anywhere. It was simply the globe without the fox. Lastly it installed itself as "Gran Paradiso Alpha 1" instead of being called "Firefox".
