500 million Firefox downloads: complete; 500 million grains: in progress

Mary Colvig

108

Firefox just reached  500,000,000 downloads. This is an absolutely phenomenal milestone for Firefox. It is sort of hard to imagine what that number means. For some perspective, that’s roughly the audience size of 10,000 Rome Colosseums combined. It would be the weight, in kilograms, of 8,500 Boeing 747 airplanes. In dollars, for $500 million you and 15 of your friends can fly to the International Space Station.

OR, you can affect change and invite 15 of your friends to play a game and feed 25,000 people. With your help we can break another milestone today with FreeRice.com –500,000,000 grains of donated rice in one day. Imagine helping to feed the hungry while picking up some new vocabulary too!

    […] I love the Mozilla Firefox web browser. So do, apparently, a lot of other people, because Mozilla just announced that Firefox has reached 500 million downloads. To celebrate this huge milestone — seriously, that’s a whole lot of downloads — the company is doing something we can all get behind. Today they’re asking users to visit the site FreeRice.com, which is a sister site of Poverty.org. At FreeRice.com you play a vocabulary game and for each word you get right, the site donates 20 grains of rice through the UN Food Program. Firefox has a lofty goal for today — they’re encouraging their 500 million friends to donate 500 million grains of rice. […]

Además, fomentan la participación en FreeRice, un sitio en el cual jugando donamos arroz para alimentar a las personas pobres del mundo, lastima que el juego es en inglés y sobre vocabulario, lo cual es un poco complicado pero bueno, volvamos a Firefox.
