One billion downloads by Firefox


At last week Friday, Firefox software crossed the one billion download threshold. It is a especially large number for Mozilla's open source Web browser. Mozilla fans love their highlight, and Mozilla enjoys fanning the flames by providing abundance of opportunities. In 2008 the Firefox Download Day was celebrated with more than 8 million downloads in 24 hours. Mozilla bragged that Firefox downloads surpassed 1 billion on Friday.

Now we have the one billion download figures on the Spread Firefox site. That includes updates people have fetched intentionally, not habitual updates. To maximize the marketing potential, Mozilla also is advertising the 1,000,000,000 + you site. Firefox director said in June that Mozilla estimates that there are 300 million Firefox users; up from 175 million a year earlier, so don't go thinking there are a billion people using it. The total number of users is much more interesting statistic than downloads.

Mozilla has really achieved genuine success, eating progressively into Microsoft Internet Explorer's leading market share to become the 2nd most used browser. The latest version is downloaded between 40 and 60 times a second worldwide at present.
