Firefox 3 Released with EV Support

Unless you've been living under a proverbial rock, you know that Firefox 3 was released today. In addition to an advanced bookmark manager, a new skin, faster script execution, and a new address bar, the new security features of Firefox 3 make it an essential upgrade. If you haven't downloaded it yet, you still have a chance to download it and set a world record for most software downloaded in a day. So... download Firefox 3 now.

One of the biggest security updates is recognition of EV SSL certificates. Firefox 3 users will now see a green bar to the right of the address bar when using a site that is secured by an EV SSL Certificate.

Firefox is the second most used web browser after Internet Explorer and Firefox 3's adoption of EV Certificate support will make EV Certificates much more valuable. For more information about Firefox 3's Site Identification button, read our introduction to it.
