Default Download Day - Results

We did it!

We set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in 24 hours. With your help we reached 8,002,530 downloads.
You are now part of a World Record and the proud owner of the best version of Firefox yet!
Don't forget to download your very own certificate for helping set a Guinness World Record.

Damned right mate ... although the picture in this BBC article claims a total figure of 8290545. I was merely one.

And yes, having installed my download on all 3 'puters I gotta say I rather like it. Microsoft are not keen to give up however. I notice that when I click to access MSN (hotmail) emails, dear old M$ OS still insists on using I-Exploiter even though for every other form of internet link it is Firefox that bursts into life.

I am particularly impressed with the "download" options, the ability to switch facilities on and off with ease and, perhaps most importantly, the very reassuring way that Firefox handles addons. It's like a little ray of sanity in and otherwise torrentential downpour of Redmond.

(no - I'm not being paid to say any of that)
