Firefox closing in on 1 billion downloads


Big number - 1 billion, isn’t it? Mozilla Firefox is expecting to hit that magical number of downloads later today, TechCrunch reports. A Twitter account was set up to monitor the numbers and currently it stands at 999,423,113 downloads. The download rate is hovering around 11-12 downloads per second, which means that the milestone will be reached in another 13 hours or so.


Mozilla is also preparing a new site which isn’t yet live, to celebrate the big moment. You will find more information and banners like the one below at


This one billion number is obviously for all the versions of Firefox, since it was launched in 2002, although the Firefox name officially took hold in 2004. It’s still impressive.
