Firefox 3 World Record

FANS of the Mozilla Firefox web browser were attempting to set a world record for the most downloads of a software program in 24 hours. And guess what - we almost did it! It just took five hours to download over 1.6 million copies to get rid of old download record set by Firefox 2.

The offical body of Guinness World Records is yet to approve and announce the record attempt. However, you can go ahead and flaunt it by downloading and printing your very own personalized Firefox 3 Download Day certificate.

From the official blog:

We are currently serving almost 9,000 downloads a minute, which puts us on track to achieve 5-7 million downloads our first day of general availability. To put some more color behind what's been happening on this historic day:

  1. We exceeded the first day download mark for Firefox 2 of 1.6 million after just five hours of availability for Firefox 3.
  2. Net Applications is already reporting a 300% positive change in Firefox 3 market share worldwide just today.

Well done everyone and soon there will be a new World Record :D
