Firefox 3 Sets Guinness World Record

Firefox 3 had more than 8 million downloads in the 24 hours of Download Day. After careful review by the Guinness World Record people, it's official! They will be presented with the actual certificate next week in London.

Firefox has been steadily growing in popularity over the past few years and the publicity generated by this record should further boost that. Even the BBC has written an article - it's great to see the browser making mainstream news.

Firefox 3 has been downloaded 28.7 million times so far with about 1.2 million of those downloads being from the UK.

Update (10th July 2008):
Mozilla have now been presented with the official Guinness World Record certificate!
