Firefox exceeds 100 million downloads in one year
The Mozilla Foundation extended 100 million "thank you's" Wednesday to Firefox community members for "reigniting innovation on the Web," the group said. As the browser's first anniversary approaches this November, Firefox adoption numbers have exceeded expectations with more than 100 million downloads since Firefox's introduction, Mozilla said.
Firefox's download success is a direct result of the collaborative efforts of thousands of contributors worldwide, a Mozilla spokeswoman said. "Their work developing and fine-tuning the Firefox browser ensures the best Web experience available," she added.
