Firefox Download Day


xtal256

Recommended Posts

Hi, all. The other day i came across a post on another forum. It was about Firefox Download Day 2008, the Mozilla team's attempt at breaking the Guinness World Record for most software downloads in 24 hours. I love FF so i thought it was a great idea, and since no-one here seems to have mentioned it I thought i would try to get everyone here to participate. Currently over 220,000 people have joined up (OMG, when i last checked a few days ago it was only 63,000!!) with even people from Niger and Ethiopia signing up.

So what are you waiting for, Get Firefox!!

 

note: i have posted here and not in Tech & PC Chat because it's something that everyone can participate in and not necessarily related to tech (also i get more hits here smile.gif)

Any official word on Firefox 3?

 

Edit: Only 8 people from Niger. sad.gif

Well, the official download day has not yet been set but if you give them your email address they will email you when it's time.

There is more info from the Mozilla team here

Thanks for posting this. I actually had no idea that FF3 was being released so soon. Just a quick question about it though, will I have to install all of my extensions and add-ons that I have on FF2? Or will they just transfer over to FF3?

Great question. I'm wondering it, too. I have quite a few add-ons for Firefox right now, and I'd hate to lose them all.

It should just transfer them over automatically. Some may not be totally compatible but the ones that are good for anything usually have no problem transferring over.

I tried using IE7 for about a week last year because of all the hype over it and I absolutely hated it. Firefox has spoiled me, I can't use any other browser now.

There's no doubt about that. Firefox is better than IE in so many ways.

They'll stay installed, but most will probably be disabled until there's updates to make it work, all my addons still work from when I upgraded to FF3 Beta 5.

 

Going to use the schools internet to help out with this, see how many copies I can get of FF. tounge.gif

This is for FF3? Sure, I'll participate. I still remember when I thought IE was better than FF; man, those were the days.

Ah, thanks. I would have resized it myself but i couldn't be bothered.

No one yet but they hope to beat their own record of 1.6 million downloads for FF2.

Yeah! I hate IE7, it's slow and ugly and boasts about features that FF had years before it.

Me too. I used to like IE better than stupid Netscape Navigator but once i discovered FF there was no looking back smile.gif

As you can see in my signature I am a fan of Firefox.

 

I agree Internet Explorer 7 sucks. It's too slow for my taste, there is nothing that come close to Firefox. I can't wait for Firefox 3 I hope it becomes available soon.

 

I am pledged and thanks for the link.

I first started out with Opera and I just loved it. Then, I found out about Mozilla, and eventually Firefox. The Tabs won me over, IE5 didn't have sh*t on that. Not to mention the better security and less memory hogger.

So how many people here have signed up so far. I would really like to know. Maybe start a poll?

234,786 people worldwide so far. That's an increase of around 10,000 people since i first posted! Awesome.

I've added a link to my signature to anybody that cares or is interested in taking part. It's the logo for the 'F' train.

Might just give up my good old IE6 for this. Tried IE7 on my laptop and I wanted to throw it out the window after 5 minutes of trying to get used to it.

I pledged just now. I can't seem to convince some people I know why Firefox is better, they just don't understand. Plus I can't remember every reason all at once so I usually just spout the tab recovery system but they don't care.

Yup, same here. Everyone I try to convert to Firefox is like, "I like IE better!" and then they claim that it's faster than FF. My friend wouldn't download it (because he's a lazy piece of sh*t), but then he found that he had somehow had it on his computer already. He used it once and was instantly in love.

 

Once my computer illiterate girlfriend said she didn't like FF. She said google was better. I almost slapped her.

Fo sheezy.

FF is the best browser, imo. So I'll support them with this... if I remember to download it on the date they say to blush.gif

I'm sure they'll bombard me with emails.
