According to Mozilla’s official live downloads page, Firefox 3 is about to hit 8 million downloads (at the time of writing this, it was at around 7.9 million and rising VERY fast). This is in the first 24 hours of its release.
According to the page, this translates to about 5,400 downloads per minute AND RISING.
This is a staggering accomplishment for Mozilla and a remarkable achievement for an internet browser. Never before has so much demand been there for an internet browser and it obviously goes without saying that Mozilla have their world downloading record that they were after – but was there a record to beat in the first place?
I think Mozilla has set the record for the first time!
