OK OK so I didn't do it alone I had help from 8,002,529 other people downloading Mozillas latest version of Firefox. I got this in my email today: Download Day 2008 We did it! We set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in 24 hours. With your help we reached 8,002,530 downloads. You are now part of a World Record and the proud owner of the best version of Firefox yet! Did you also help set this world record? (or any other for that matter?)

Feel free it has become part of my daily language. I guess I can't lay claim to fame over that one though as it is on urban dictionary and has been on there since 2003 apparently.

it was at the end of last month that they did that. If you didn't download it during that 24 hour period last month, the you missed it. BUT you DID download a great browser.. so congrats for that.

Although I wasn't a direct influence on this new record, I believe I was an indirect influence in this new record. I have for years spread the word of FF, and converted many IE users to FF lol, and so, I have to feel some pride about what I have done :D lol. Firefox is the best! -Chris

You are right! Converting people from IE to FF is the way to go.. and HEY probably participated in the world record.. so indeed you did indirectly take part. Good for you

Well I was one of the ones who downloaded the latest version of Firefox. I've used Firefox as one of my main browsers for quite a long time and I really like it. So, of course, when the new update came out, I had to have it! Have a great weekend! Char :-)
