Firefox new Guinness world record ! I Just love this browser

Mozilla has officially made history with a new Guinness world record for the largest number of software downloads in a 24-hour period.

The final record breaking 8,002,530 downloads for web browser Firefox 3.0 took place in June.
“The enthusiasm and creativity of Firefox fans was key to making this happen,” said marketing head Paul Kim.
Gareth Deaves of Guinness World Records called it “an extremely impressive accomplishment”.
The official figure was confirmed after logs from download servers were audited and checked to ensure duplicate and unfinished downloads were not counted.
Mr Kim told the BBC News: “The notion of going for a world record, as… nutty as it may have sounded, was a really sticky idea.
“It was an idea that translated really well across national borders and to all different kinds of people around the world.”
Marketing manager Mary Colvig said no party was planned to celebrate the record until the actual certificate was presented by Guinness World Records in London next week.
“Here at Mozilla headquarters (in Mountain View) I think most of us are just going to try and get to bed early now that we have the confirmation. We are all tired.”
