The full release in now available. If you get it today you’ll contribute to Mozilla’s World Record attempt if that sort of thing appeals to you.
I have installed it and apart from some plugins not being available all is well. A bug I’ve had since 2.x is still apparent which I was hoping would be fixed – an issue with my bookmarks toolbar which extends off the side of the screen. The bug is that the little double drop down arrow (the one that reveals the bookmarks that wouldn’t fit in the bar) still isn’t visible until I have clicked one of my bookmarks. It’s probably because my Stumble bar shares the line. Oh well the awesomeness of the awesome bar makes up for that!

How much do you believe? Do you have any doubts? Mind deprogramming might just be called for.
7/7 Mind the Gap is an interesting documentary about how the Intelligence Services have played a role in the London bombing. The story is compelling so I recommend taking a look.
MI5 whistleblower David Shayler presents new evidence to demand London bombings enquiry. A very detailed and well evidenced documentary

Are you at all concerned with what Google knows (or may come to know) about your search history, and therefore yourself?
Google has a “Do no Evil” motto and I would love to believe them. At this stage all seems to be going well and I am happy for more competition for Micro$oft in any form. Google are really it (although Apple are making a comeback of sorts and there is the whole creative commons, gnu, and open-source battle still to come) for keeping MS real and I praise them for it. However as Google has become the search engine they have an enormous potential for misuse or even outright abuse.
What the hell are you going to do to keep your paranoia in check?
