Have previously blogged about “Download Day”, when the new Firefox 3 browser was to become available – and no, I’m not a Microsoft-hater (far from it) – just thought it was a cool idea, to set a new download record.
Received an email this morning :

From 18:16 UTC on June 17, 2008 to 18:16 UTC on June 18, 2008, 8,002,530 people downloaded Firefox 3…
You are now part of a World Record…
That’s about 92 per second – for the entire 24 hour period…!

The total is now sitting at over 28 million – with nearly 1/2 million from Australia.
