It’s Mozilla Download Day 2008, the day Mozilla planed to break the record for most software downloads in one day with the new FireFox 3. Unfortunately for Mozilla they didn’t plan ahead and starting with the China site and sweeping across the globe all the Mozilla sites have crashed.
Once the Chinese started Download Day early it spread west around the globe reaching the global site and crashing the Download Day page at Spread FireFox.
This was bad planning on Mozilla’s part, when they got over a million signatures pledging to download FireFox 3 on Download Day they should have known they would take a hit to their bandwidth a prepared for the on slot.
For now the Mozilla.com site and the Mozilla blog are coming off and on and using the download link from Mozilla.org allows you to still download FireFox 3 slowly. Get ready to pay the 3 TB bandwidth overages Mozilla.
