Mega Download Of The Day: FireFox Browser Final 3.0

Firefox 3.0 has been released and available for immediate download. Mozilla foundation is aiming to set a world record for the most downloads in 24 hours. IE’s lack of compliance with web standards and security issue made Firefox more popular among the techsavy / geek users.

For past 34 month Mozilla engineers have been working and perfecting Firefox v3.0. Now almost 15% of Internet users surf the web with Firefox. Mozilla Foundation aims to try and set a world record for the most downloads in a day. It needs to beat its own record set by Firefox version 2.0. It was downloaded 1.6 million times in Oct-2006. The attempt to break the record will begin at 10:30PM IST (10:00am PDT i.e. 17:00 GMT). Good Luck, Mozilla Team!

    By posting direct download links – you’ve just trashed their attempt to break the record for most downloads in one day. Anyway, I’m using RC version, it looks good but still the memory footprint is huge (215Mb).

    If you still don’t know, Mozilla is trying to set a GUINNESS world recored for most software downloads in a 24 hour period. Only full software downloads are considered. So just go and grab your copy.

    Worldreord –

    Happy browsing with FF3!

    That’s what I thought. So why did you give the wrong time on your page?

    You mean 10:00AM, the “PM” is wrong ||

    Can you update your post?

    Dam, I just cleared out wordpress page and rss cache. Each page is cached for 6 hours. Thanks for the heads up.

  • kwik Jun 17, 2008 @ 18:23

    Http/1.1 Service Unavailable 🙁

  • dt Jun 17, 2008 @ 18:30

    Yeah, I’ve tried several times, too

    Their site must be pretty busy, surely they *planned* for these millions of downloads

    Sigh …

  • kwik Jun 17, 2008 @ 19:15

    Finally, I got it but where is my back button?

  • kwik Jun 17, 2008 @ 19:18

    Grr .. Just visit View > Toolbars > Customize > Drag <- and -> buttons to toolbar.


  • dt Jun 18, 2008 @ 2:31

    got it many times now

    had to vnc and rdp to about a dozen sites

    that should mix up the ipaddr for the statisticians at Guinness
