A New Milestone in Firefox Usage

John will likely soon be discussing last week’s milestone in more detail, but in the meantime, we just wanted to highlight that Firefox exceeded 50 million active daily users for the first time last Wednesday (for background on our usage metric, please read here). The most impressive part of this accomplishment – aside from the contributions of our community members and contributors across the globe – is the sheer magnitude of growth that we continue to see on a daily basis. Firefox usage has recently been growing at a pace far exceeding anything we have seen in our history (in absolute numbers, not necessarily in percentage terms).

Over the past several months, the Firefox community has been growing by more than a half million new active daily users – every week.
