Mic recently shared a few words of congratulations with our localizers and translators around the globe who helped make the Firefox 3 launch a great success. As a follow-up, I wanted to spell out a few numbers associated with the impact and success of these contributions:
- about 73% of downloads since launch have been from users outside the U.S.
- about 55% of downloads since launch have been of non en-US language versions
- (some users outside the U.S. download and use the en-US version, hence the difference between the two percentages)
- of the latter group — more than 11 million downloads in absolute terms — the percentage breakdown is shown in the chart below
