He said he's been running the most recent RC, that is the most recent Release Candidate, he didn't say anything about running the final version. They've actually been out of the beta stage for awhile. I've been running RC3 myself and haven't noticed any real issues except some of my plugins not working. Seems to be a decent upgrade from FF2.0 so far.

Great! This is a good news especially for Firefox users like me. I hope this is much faster and more secured browser. I can't wait to try this Firefox 3.

Well it's got to be about 5am PST time (it's gone 1pm here) and still no download is available :|

After making all this fuss about the download record, They must be kicking themselves that it isn't up yet.
