Firefox crossed one billion download milestone

Posted on 03 August 2009

It was reported that Mozilla Firefox marked a peak of 1 billion downloads this Friday.  This was noticed on the Spread Firefox site along with Firefox Counter Twitters marks digits of ten numbers.  It’s a success of Mozilla to get a place in the market that hit 1 billion downloads.



Mozilla planned to launch a website of URL as onebillionplusyou.com, but for the meantime it has designed graphical pictures to expose the event.


But more that is concerned is the number of active users on the browsers than the amount of downloads made from it. Last reports of active users were 22 percent of Mozilla in which four percent were made in last year.  Safari browser is also in the race, where as the Google Chrome is gradually making place in the market.

The bad part is that Internet Explorer is loosing its prominent position from the market where other browsers are steadily moving forward to make major share in the market.

    Your headline says one ‘million’ downloads, the story says one ‘billion’. You might want to fix that…
