Today is the day that records are meant to be broken.

In the world of open source browsers named Firefox, that is.

While the official Mozilla site is crashing, and crashing hard, I was able to grab it from one of their official mirrors quickly, so it still counted towards their desire to break the record for most downloads of a new release (or something like that).

You can grab a copy for yourself.

What’s that? You don’t want to get rid of Firefox 2.x just yet? Developer worried about backwards compatability? Some useful add-on not updated yet?

Fret not.

Multifirefox to the rescue. I know I wrote about it before, but we just wanted to let you know that it’s not just for betas of Firefox3. I works with as many versions of Firefox as you care to drop in your App folder and appropriately name.

Just drag the Firefox.app out of the DMG, put it on your desktop for a hot second. Rename it Firefox3, and put it in your Applications directory from there.

Easy peasie.

Get the latest version of MultiFirefox (now with sparkle, so it’ll keep updating as Dave makes updates).
