This will overwrite FF 3.0, right?

I'll have to try it on another computer. Last time I installed a beta, all my settings (bookmarks) and add-ons got messed up.

So this is just the next FireFox release or is it separate?

I believe its more of a developers Beta at this time, and yes it will likely mess up add ons, etc. As with any Beta you are part of the test group and really cant expect full functionality or "polished product" at that stage.

Download firefox-3.1b2pre.en-US.win32.zip. It's a standalone version, i.e. no installation required.
