Firefox plans download record attempt
With Firefox 3 expected to be released in just a couple of weeks the Spread Firefox campaign is recruiting supporters to set a new record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours. Although there is no pre-existing Guinness record for software downloads, more than 1.6 million copies of Firefox 2 were downloaded on the day it was launched, making that an obvious target.
“Let’s shoot for 5 million – the sky is the limit!” the team says on the download record site.
Firefox 3 is expected to be released some time in June. The Firefox 3 release candidate has already been released.
Firefox fans can “pledge” to download Firefox 3 on the date of its release by visiting the Download Headquarters.
