Firefox 4, the new version of Firefox released on 22nd March, got 7.1 million downloads worldwide in 24 hours. So, if someone asks, How many times Firefox 4 was downloaded in 24hours? You got the answer, its 7.1 million. But still wasn’t good enough to break the record of its predecessor Firefox 3. A year ago Firefox 3 came out and made its way to Genesis Book of Record with the highest downloads of 8 million in 24 hours.
Yes, the previous version Mozilla Firefox 3 reached 8 million downloads in 24 hours which was a world record. I wonder why this newer version couldn’t break that record as this one is way too better than the previous one. The new look of firefox 4 is amazing, the cool new tabs, the add on manager, and most importantly I liked the speed of it.
[ad#ad-taalz-inpost-right]Microsoft is still has no comparison with Firefox, IE9 released few weeks back is way too better than all other browsers. I am loving IE9 right now, but unfortunately IE9 could only make 2.35million downloads in 24 hours. I think the main reason for this lower number is that IE9 is only available to users on Windows 7 and Windows Vista platform, whereas, the count of downloads from Mozilla Firefox 4 is for all the platforms including Windows, Linux, Mac and Mobile phone. So by this, I’m not impressed and rather more impressed by IE9 that it made 2.35 million which is a huge number on a very limited platform.
