    You heard it right, as of now, the web page is not yet updated but the download page is now up

    Check it:

    (Link removed due to RC3 mistake) download thru FTP for any machines given below:

    Click Mac for OS X and Win for Windows

    EDIT from Engadget: Update: Looks like we're getting ahead of ourselves. Although a file titled, "Firefox 3.0" (without the RC# associated with previous release candidates) is active and available to download, it looks like it's just the RC3 installer placed in the final 3.0 folder.

    Download -- FF 3.0 all versions [Warning: FTP, will not be counted in world record attempt] (Final Release Mac and Win)
    Download -- FF 3.0 to be counted in world record attempt (active at 10am PDT)

    But I pledged to start downloading on the 17th, which, according to some people starts at 1am tonight (18th). Um. Um.

    Can I download it twice? Will that still be counted for the Guinness thing? How about if I download it now and then download it again tomorrow on a different IP address? :D

    which isn't really official if you mean 'some people' means it didn't come from mozilla themselves. they should track it for the number of unique IP irregardless of time - unless if there is a guinness rule against it. :)

    It's already 17 in some parts of America, I dunno if It's applicable. Then do it tomorrow if you are skeptical.

    EDIT: totoo nga, 1AM PH Time, if you are itching for one, get it from the FTP Site, then just download it when the clock starts ticking tomorrow, anyway, it's still download day.
