Firefox 3 Download Record

June 19th, 2008

Big week for the Mozilla/Firefox group who appear to have set a Guinness World Record for most software downloads in a 24 hour period.

Excerpted from the BBC:

In the first 24 hours the web browser was available the software was downloaded more than eight million times, says its creator Mozilla.

Statistics from the download servers are being scrutinised to produce an official figure that will be passed to the Guinness World Record organisation.

This is a huge deal around here as Oregon State University’s Open Source Lab is a major North American download site and development hub for open source software. In fact, The OSUOSL will be certifying the download count according to the BBC.

Logs from the download servers have been handed to the Open Source Labs at Oregon State University for auditing. The scrutiny will ensure duplicate and unfinished downloads are not counted. The verification process could take a week to complete.

If you would like to download Firefox 3, UPDATE: Mozilla is now at FF 3.5, click the new button now!
