Mozilla says Firefox 3 ready for prime-time

A new version of Mozillas popular Firefox Web browser is ready for download with improved security and memory use as the tiny company takes a stab at Microsoft Corps dominant Internet Explorer.

The programs creators told Reuters on Thursday that the privately-held companys trial version of Firefox 3 browser is ready for the masses to use after months of development. Until now, the company has discouraged average Internet users from moving on from Firefox 2, which was launched in October 2006.

"In many ways it (Firefox 3) is much more stable than anything else out there," Mozilla Corp Vice President of Engineering Mike Schroepfer said in an interview. Key rivals to Firefox are market leader Microsofts Internet Explorer and Apple Incs Safari browser.
