It’s official! Mozilla breaks world record
Mozilla's Firefox sets record for most downloads in a 24 hour period
The Guinness World Records have officially credited Mozilla for the most downloads in 24 hours with a remarkable 8,002,530 copies of Firefox being downloaded.
"As the arbiter and recorder of the world's amazing facts, Guinness World Records is pleased to add Mozilla's achievement to our archives," Gareth Deaves, Guinness' records manager, said in a statement.
Mozilla's Download Day on June 17 sought to popularize the open-source web browser and while Mozilla projected that it had passed the 8 million mark at the time, the numbers have only now become official.
