I guess it is a very good news for the team to know that their product is being used by so many people but I think it is very less in number if you consider the fact that his browser is being used worldwide and it is getting popular day by day. I guess that was the day when Firefox officially or an officially announced the release of beta version for the third version of Firefox and I guess that it is reason why they had so many downloads in a single day. Apart from that I even got to e-mail deriding the same telling me to download the software because a lot of people are doing the same on this very seemed in so that they can get a very good response. And to encourage them and even downloaded although I'm not particularly using the latest version because there are some plug-in problems with the same and I cannot serve the net without those plug-ins.

My browser is mozilla firefox. I used to be an internet explorer user but viruses always gets in my computer that is why I decided to switch.It gives me security and since I started using this browser (with the help of anti-virus of course) my problems with viruses became minimal. I agree with those saying that this is the best browser.

Well I am an old Mozilla user and I can confirm this. The download day on 17th of june was a complete success. More than 8 million and 2 thousand users downloaded the new firefox version that day, and helped set up a guinness world record. The download page is still available on http://www.spreadfirefox.com/en-US/worldrecord/
