Set a Guinness World Record, enjoy a better web. Spread Firefox group has a mission to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours.
Sounds like a good deal, right? All you have to do is get Firefox 3 during Download Day to help set the record for most software downloads in 24 hours – it’s that easy. We’re not asking you to swallow a sword or to balance 30 spoons on your face, although that would be kind of awesome.
The official date for the launch of Firefox 3 will be posted soon – So join their community and this effort by pledging today. Check out this link Set a Guinness World Record Firefox 3 and participate by clicking on PLEDGE NOW!
As I love Firefox, I would love to participate in their mission :), I pray their effort should achieve this record. The total number of pledges when I pledged was: 339,564, more pledges are from United States (53,749).
As the pledges are very less compared to as it should be, though why not I support the Firefox team to get more pledges from my country too. If you are an owner of a website or a blog why not try to spread their effort and try to achieve their mission by visiting their Get Involved support page.
After download day, I think it might take few days to know if they have broken the record. Judges from Guinness World Records and from Spread Firefox will review download logs and will validate the record attempt.
As I think this is the first world record attempt, so I don’t think there is some past record to break. So this will be a new record of its kind :). As their past record was around 1.6 million for downloading Firefox 2 on its launch day and this time they are expecting around 5 times the past record, might be targeting 5 million downloads in a day for Firefox 3.
They claim Firefox 3 is with more than 14,000 improvements, Firefox 3 is faster, safer and smarter than before.
Firefox 3 sets the innovation bar very high with exciting new features, including one-click bookmarking, the smart location bar, and lightning-fast performance.
