Apparently it didn’t plan ahead for the swarm of traffic that would hit its servers when the Firefox 3 update got released at 1 p.m. ET. (And it doesn’t look like Mozilla is using a CDN like Akamai or Limelight to cache its site.)
We’ve been trying to load Mozilla’s site to download Firefox 3 for the last 15 minutes, with no success. So in the meantime, we’ll stick with our old browser. We will, however, try to make it to the NYC Firefox 3 launch party tonight at AdaptiveBlue in SoHo.
