FireFox surpasses 1 billion downloads!

The team of 1 billion downloads of firefox - whatwasithinking.co.ukMozilla Labs have done it – the download counter shows more than 1 billion downloads of Firefox! What started as a rewrite of the old Netscape browser has now become the second most used browser world-wide, with an almost 23% market share (according to stat counter’s figures).

The recent release of FireFox 3.5 boosted those numbers (with about 5 million downloads in the first week!) to over 1 billion. Why not celebrate with Mozilla Labs by reading about the history of FireFox or treating yourself to some cool extensions? 😉
