Firefox 3 is on fire
June 19, 2008
Firefox 3 was officially launched Tuesday June 17th, and after a quick run through our analytics, and since then (i.e. the last 48 hours or so) over 11% of visitors to FreshBooks have been using FF 3.0 – wow!
A few of us FreshBookers attended Mozilla’s FireFox 3 Launch Party on Tuesday at Toronto’s Mozilla office. It was an honor for us to attend while Mozilla team aimed to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours. More than 8 million downloads in 24 hours, a cumulative total of over 12 million and counting to date. In fact it’s gone from 10 to 12 million since I started writing this post earlier today!
Congratulations to Mozilla team on a successful release, it was our pleasure to attend the release party. Without Mosaic, Netscape, FireFox, a lot of us web developers will not be where we are today.
Here’s a photo of Toronto Mozilla office with a live counter of total downloads per minute:
Here you can see Ben, Zoe and I putting on our sad faces and reminding you that hurting the web hurts us:
