Mozilla Firefox 3.0 RC2 released

Mozilla unveiled the second release candidate of Firefox 3.0 and said all of the issues that remain are on the server or site side, not in the application itself.

Firefox 3.0 Release Candidate 2 (RC2) fixed about 40 bugs identified after Mozilla issued the first release candidate three weeks ago.

Mozilla made the decision to go with another release candidate last week, rejecting the option of shipping Firefox 3.0 as is, then following up with a bug fix update later. Mozilla executives assured users that the additional RC would not delay the expected launch date, which has been set for mid-month.

Firefox accounts for 18.4% of the browser market, according to the most recent data from Net Applications Inc. Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer remains the most widely used browser, with a 73.8% share, while Apple Inc.'s Safari comes in third with 6.3%.
