All eyes have been on the Firefox 3 launch, but there has been news across the board. PPK has been on the case and gives us this really nice writeup:

The first is obviously good news; I have my reservations about the second. My gut reaction is No, but I still have to figure out exactly why I think so; and Iâ€™m afraid that, too, will have to wait until next month.
Finally, therâ€™s supposed to be a new tool for running all IE versions simultaneously, and the current buzz indicates it performs as promised. Itâ€™s still in alpha, but this, too, will be worth a closer look in a month or so.
Firefox 3 final is supposed to be released today, but right now thereâ€™s no download link yet. Maybe itâ€™ll be revealed once morning comes around in the USâ€”or maybe itâ€™ll be postponed for a few days. In any case, itâ€™s here.
Apple is supposed to have released a Safari 4 Developer Preview through the Apple Developer Connection, but unfortunately I havenâ€™t been able to find an actual download linkâ€”and World of Apple doesnâ€™t mention it either.
If you know where it can be downloaded, please leave a comment.
