If Mozilla’s social media and other online marketing campaigns pan out, the answer to that question will be Firefox 3. Starting at 1 PM EST on June 17, 2008 (today!) the newest version of the popular open source Web browser will be available for download worldwide.

If you want to add to the record, check out the world record page at SpreadFirefox.com, pledge to download the app and then head over to the Mozilla homepage and download Firefox. More than 1.655 million people have already made a pledge worldwide.

If you just can’t wait, Digital Inspiration has blogged that Firefox 3 is available on on Mozilla’s FTP and Web servers. Here are the paths:

Happy World Download Day!
