One Billion Downloads of Firefox!

Shannon Prior

48

Last night the official Spread Firefox download counter reached one billion! That’s one billion times over the last five years that users have chosen a better Web experience.

This is a monumental event – Firefox has come a long way since its debut in November 2004, thanks to the amazing Firefox community. Volunteers from all over the world contribute to the coding, testing and spreading of Firefox to communities across the globe. Firefox 3.5 shipped in 75 languages – more than any other browser.

On Monday, www.onebillionplusyou.com will go live and act as a hub of information concerning the billionth download of Firefox. So stay tuned!
