You're right, it's not officially released yet. A number of sites have posted links, but until it appears on mozilla.com it's not official. Only a matter of hours until that happens, so it's extremely unlikely there will be any changes, but still...

It drives the people at Mozilla crazy when this happens, they get large numbers of people trying to download from servers that are not load balanced like the official download servers. The servers get all jammed up, it's a big mess. Wait to get it from the official site.

The new Firefox 4 browser seems quite popular:-

Firefox 4 has been downloaded more than 5 million times in less than 24 hours since it became available, according to Mozilla's official download stats page.

In comparison, Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9 was downloaded 2.35 million times in its first 24 hours of availability.

Most news sources show variations on the above quote.

The current counter (at 09:45 am GMT) shows well over 23,050,000 downloads and is going up by almost 4,000 a minute.
