Firefox to reach a billion downloads soon — probably tomorrow


Mozilla Firefox is about to reach a billion downloads, and will probably hit the milestone tomorrow. According to the unofficial Firefox Guestimator, Firefox is going to reach the billion download mark at around 11:49 UTC (7:49 AM Eastern), although the exact time will depend on download activity in Europe and Asia. Right now the download counter stands at 999,024,648.

Reaching 1,000,000,000 downloads has never been accomplished by any non-bundled browser, and really is, in my opinion, a historic event. I’m getting up at 5:30 or 6:00 tomorrow to see the SpreadFirefox download counter reach 1,000,000,000. Mozilla will also launch a website, OneBillionPlusYou.com, showcasing photos of people in Firefox gear in front of landmarks.
