Mozilla 'Download Day' attempt at Guinness World RecordMikey 11 comments
Mozilla have just announced they intend to break a Guinness world record for the largest number of downloads in a 24 hour period, to be attempted in the day of release of Firefox 3, or as their marketing team is now calling it - 'Download Day'. What the current world record is seems to be a bit of a mystery, and the crap-tacular search built into the official Guinness world record web site is of no use. The best I could find was this article from 2003.
You can show your support (as we are here on Rusty Lime) by pledging to download Firefox 3, hosting a online Firefox 3 party, inviting friends to participate, or by placing Download Day button on your web site. How anyone can resist the button below is beyond me.
And you can check out a map map pledges to-date and details on the official launch date here.
If you haven't tried Firefox but have been curious, now is the good time to see what all the fuss is about. It will change your browsing life. Once you tried it you won't go back to the dinosaur that is Internet Explorer.
