Posted on

Download Day

Today is Firefox 3 Download Day! Mozilla are hoping to set a Guinness World Record for most software downloads in 24 hours.

At the time of writing, over 1.2 million people have pledged to download Firefox 3 on the Download Day!

This is a first attempt of this record, so there is no number to beat. But Mozilla want to outdo the number of Firefox 2 downloads on its launch day, which was 1.6 million! The aim is 5 million+!

Update: It’s official, Firefox 3 set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in 24 hours. Reaching 8,002,530 downloads! They even give me a certificate for taking part … feels like I’m back at primary school! :-D (so proud!)
