Mozilla Firefox 4 was released on Tuesday, and early reports indicated that the latest version of Mozilla’s open-source browser was downloaded more than 5 million times in the first 24 hours. Those reports were wrong. It turns out, that Firefox 4 was downloaded 7.1 million times in its first day. In fact, in the first 48 hours of release, Mozilla racked up more than 15.85 million downloads.
Over at the Mozilla blog, the team put together an infographic detailing the first 48 hours of activity. Downloads peaked at 10,200 per minute and averaged 91.7 downloads per second. That kind of leaves Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 27 downloads per second figure in the dust, doesn’t it? Are you one of the 15.85 million Firefox 4 Downloaders?
