Firefox 3 is all set to reach new territories, and on the way to its glory it aims to create a world record for the most number of software downloads in a single day. Mozilla is surely on its way to create the record and its asking everyone including me and you to pledge to download Firefox 3 when its available for public download..
Well the dates for the release haven’t been announced as yet but looking at the recent Release Candidate builds Firefox looks like a solid improvement over Firefox 2. I’d say go ahead and make a pledge to help Firefox create this new world record…
To help Mozilla set the world record, they recommend the following:
- Sign up to get the final copy of Firefox 3 on Download Day.
- Host a Download Day Fest on Firefox 3 launch day at your school, office, or anywhere with an Internet connection.
- Become a Firefox campus representative and collect pledges from fellow students.
- Add Mozilla buttons and banners to your site, blog, or profile.
Nearly 120,000 people have already pledged, but I can imagine this number will grow significantly in the following days. You can even see how many people have pledged from each individual country on a nifty world map, as pictured below. As of now the United States is in the lead but I’d like to see my home country India be a bigger part of this initiative.
So what are you waiting for? lets get moving and stab IE in the face. Come on people, Firefox rocks doesn’t it?
Put in your pledge right now!!
