1 minute… Firefox will set the record

Mozilla Firefox announced it would be aiming to break the world record for most software downloads in 24 hours back on May 28th.

In just one minute (better hurry up and finish the article, this is literally last minute) the day will commence and Firefox will hope to break the record set by… oh, no one has actually set the record yet. No matter, as long as Firefox receives more than 0 downloads they are set to break the record. Still, once they have set the record it will probably be a very long time before anyone else breaks it.

So how many is it going to be? It will be at least 1,000,000 downloads we would have thought as there is already nearly 2,000,000 pledges.

We look forward to testing the finished article. Hopefully Mozilla servers are ready for the mass of traffic!

UPDATE (15 minutes later): Mozilla seems to be really struggling with the excess traffic, unless the UK is being shunned then Mozilla hasn’t prepared to the standard they should. We haven’t been able to get on any of their sites or download Firefox 3.
