Firefox 3 Statistics


 firefox 3 modern logo

According to the Mozilla foundation that released the new browser, the software was downloaded 8.3 million times in its first 24 hours of release starting Tuesday morning.

 The downloads were so popular that they initially crashed the servers running the operation.

 At their busiest, the servers were handling more than 9,000 downloads per minute and within five hours had surpassed the initial daily download of 1.6 million set by Firefox 2.0 in October 2006.

Tech critics greeted the new browser and recommended users to adopt it.

 “Firefox 3 is the best Web browser I’ve ever seen. And I’ve been using the Web since before there were Web browsers,” said ComputerWorld’s Steven J Vaughan-Nichols.

 Firefox has been rapidly attracting users since its 2004 launch and now has approximately 18 per cent of the market, compared to the 72 per cent share enjoyed by Internet Explorer which has the advantage of being pre-installed on the vast majority of computers.

Firefox is mainly downloaded by individual users and as of February 2008 it had been downloaded over 500 million times. However, since one user may download the software several
times, the best estimate for regular Firefox users is around 140 million.

    Yeah, Observer

    I'm equally sad about that.. Colorzilla, UnPlug etc. are still not compatible :-<

  4. Observer says:

    It's still going to take a bit of time for all the add-ons to become compatible. One of my favourite add ons, foxilicious isnt compatible yet. 🙁

    9,000 downloads a minute – what a rush. What if one could get 9,000 hits a minute – now that's scary. I was probably one of the 9k.
