Firefox 3 has been downloaded close to 6 million times now, deemed a success


firefox-3-pic.jpgHave you downloaded Firefox 3 yet? Better scoot on, as you’ve only got a few more hours left if you want your download to count in their Guinness Book of World Records attempt.

At the moment, 5,878,774 people have downloaded the new browser, with the US, Australia, Brazil, China, Japan, Iran, Spain, France, Germany, Poland, Italy and the United Kingdom being the most supportive with over 500,000 downloads per country.

Actually, scratch that – in the time it took me to write those few sentences, thousands more people have clicked the ‘download’ button – it’s now at 5,898,474. Now it’s 5,907,602. This is turning out to be quite addictive, I think I know what I’ll be doing for the rest of the day. The F5 button is my new best friend.

  • I use Opera and have been doing so for ages now. i have used Firefox and found it dissapointing in that the “all new” features seem to be what Opera has as a normal basic set-up.

    In my opinion anyone using the new Firefox version should do so for a day or so. Then they should use Opera 9.5 to see the Original version of the ideas they have in Forefox as “new”…

    From here it seems like Firefox is the child of Opera… ideas wise anyway (“,)

    And as for this F5 business… call me lazy but, Right click, select Reload every 30 seconds and wait for the magic…


  • I would download it, just to see what all the fuss is about except for the fact that the .exe is blocked at work.

    Also, I’m going to have to say this, since somebody out here on the interweb needs to fight its corner; Opera can refresh tabs itself at specified intervals. Who needs F5?

    Ok. I’m done. ;oP
