From the FF3.0 page:
Thanks to the support of the always amazing Mozilla community, we got more than 8 million Firefox 3 downloads in 24 hours. That’s more Firefox downloads than we’ve ever had in a single day -- an impressive feat indeed!
You know this only happened because of the Colbert Bump :finga:

Sure, I downloaded 3.0 on the big event day, but to install it and run it will be when the first one or two point releases becomes available.

Currently, 2.0.0.12 is running just fine for now. :)

I got FF3 on day one and haven't had a problem with it yet. Fortunately it didn't kill my bookmarks or any thing else nasty. Couple of addins need updating.

I've been using v3 since it was called Gran Paradiso, I think I started with Beta 2, just had some add-on issues, other than that, wonderful!

Got 3.0 final yesterday, but i can't find any difference between 3.0final and RC2, is it just some code differences?

more than likely, I know for a fact that some bugs have been fixed that I reported.

Did they still omit the home button on RC2? That's back with the final release.
