I've been waiting since the 23 and nothing happened. I remember when the Firefox 3 was launched, portable version took hours to came up, that was quick.

The 23rd? And it was released on the 24th? The HORROR!

Unlike other sites, we don't rush apps out. Ours are tested, digitally signed and have an installer that gets updated for each release. We also support 6 languages which means 6 packages to double check while releasing. It's much better than the alternative of rushing it out with bugs. And Mozilla wouldn't be really happy about that (nor would I blame them), we take our agreement with them and the ability to legally use their trademarks seriously.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
