Firefox hits 1 billion downloads!

Mozilla Firefox logoFirefox has hit its milestone billionth download of all time. To celebrate the occasion, Mozilla will be launching onebillionplusyou.com on Monday, a hub for information about the achievement, and a place for Firefox users to show their love for the browser by uploading pictures of themselves representing Firefox across the globe (though they'll have a tough time beating this guy.)

Firefox 1.0 launched in November 2004 as the secure, open source alternative to market dominating Internet Explorer, which held nearly 90% market share at the time. One year later, Firefox had already attained 10% browser share. Since mid 2008, Firefox has held nearly 30% of the market, while Internet Explorer has dropped to around 60%.

Last year, Mozilla aimed at setting a world record for downloads with the release of Firefox 3.0. and set it with more than 8 million downloads in 24 hours.
