Firefox: The Word Is Getting Out

Ben Goodger has posted some interesting numbers regarding what would appear to be a rapid uptick in popularity for Mozilla Firefox. Since its release two weeks ago, Firefox 0.8 has been downloaded more than 1 million times. This contrasts with 830,000 downloads for Mozilla 1.6 since its release in January. That’s pretty impressive, to beat in two weeks what it’s taken the suite more than twice as long to do!

If you haven’t checked out Firefox yet, don’t put it off. You don’t want to be the last one in your circle of friends to do it, do you? How will you feel if your grandmother e-mails you a link to a nifty new extension, and you e-mail her back that you’re still using IE, and she calls you up just to laugh at you ‘cuz you’re such a tool? Nobody wants that. So go grab Firefox and see for yourself why it’s better — before it’s too late!
