Mozilla Firefox v3.5 release set for today
Mozilla is expected to start distributng a complete version of Firefox 3.5 today, more than six months on from when it had originally planned. Firefox 3.1 moved into 3.5 earlier this year. Mozilla made the switch in part as an acknowledgment of long delays to the browser's release, all of which meant it had undergone a sufficient degree of development to allow for a new version number to be added. The number of new features packed into the imminent version of Internet Explorer’s closest rival meant it was necessary to reflect those changes in the name, reportedly said by Mozilla’s engineering VP, Mike Shaver back in April. Increases in sie due to TraceMonkey and Private Browsing and the sheer volume of of time to for upgrades like video, layout and plugin service has been suggested as the cause of the late release, Originally, Mozilla had set December of 2008 as the release date for Firefox 3.5. But the browser's development process was hit by several delays due to incredible bugs, mostly in the open source of the JavaScript engine, which pushed back the deadline several times.

Right now, we are in the midst of rebuilding the same FreePCTech you have known and loved to keep things going!

PCSOFT and PCBUILD are unaffected by this and will continue to operate while we get things up!
