The Mozilla group has not been sitting idle since the release of Firefox 2.0, and today they released the first alpha build of Firefox 3.0 (code named "Gran Paradiso"). As the development of the browser moves forward, it is gaining new features as expected, and dropping support for older OSes like Windows 95, 98, and ME, as well as OS X 10.2, and earlier.

"Gran Paradiso Alpha 1 is an early developer milestone for the next major version of Firefox that is being built on top of the next generation of Mozilla's layout engine, Gecko 1.9. Gran Paradiso Alpha 1 is being made available for testing purposes only, and is intended for web application developers and our testing community. Current users of Mozilla Firefox should not use Gran Paradiso Alpha 1."

It is expected that Firefox 3.0 should appear on the scene sometime around the Q4 2007

My story went like this. Friday send wifr to Argos cos I am working, Argos empty, so she goes to woolworths, empty too she tries local game shop who did not get any, but the bloke says his mate just picked the last one of three that a local TV shop got in.

Wife rings me to let me know the bad news, so I ask her which TV shop "Bennetts", ring Bennetts and bag 1 of the 2 still left.:D

I put the phone down and told a work colleague who said "get me one" ring back straight away only to find item was bought by local game shop owner - cant blame him.

Bought a couple of other games on saturday and finding it really hard to resist at the moment as it is my Christmas present for the whole family.

I might have to get up secretly in the middle of the night and give it a try, bit like competetive dad of the fst show and own the family on christmas day.

sad thing is on ebay there are people who pre ordered 10 just to make a fast buck, and there will be upset kids who cannot get one off santa. Sod being Santa this year.

just had a look on ebay, there is a bloke called adventually showing a picture of all the wiis he bagged to sell at extortionate prices to little kids who cannot get them for a fair price.

I have emailed one already asking if it their fault kids from less well off families will be upset this year.

not bothered if i get a reply but then again their conscience probably wiont be bothered neither.

really is about time ebay spent more money on policing this, its all take take take with them. other than the odd 10p shipping, woooooo!

ebay don't care, the more something sells for the more they make. They probably look forward to launches like this. Bet they can't wait for the PS3. Of course they'll make out they're against it. They're just as bad as the people selling them.
