For those of you who are interested, Firefox 3 has now been released and you have until 18:16 UTC to get it for your download to count towards the record.
There’s a rather fetching and oh-so-meaningful ‘certificate‘ that you can get too!
A great marketing ploy, and one that’s obviously working its magic with 5,045,577 downloads at 08:03 UTC.
The release of Firefox 3 is imminent, and to celebrate its launch, the Mozilla Foundation is organising Download Day 2008 – an attempt to break set the record for the most software downloads in a 24 hour period.
As I’ll be downloading this soon after release for both my home and work computer, I have decided that I might as well join in the merriment. Come, join us.
