Firefox the alternative browser of choice has reached the 500 million downloads milestone.
Firefox just reached 500,000,000 downloads. This is an absolutely phenomenal milestone for Firefox. It is sort of hard to imagine what that number means. For some perspective, that’s roughly the audience size of 10,000 Rome Colosseums combined. It would be the weight, in kilograms, of 8,500 Boeing 747 airplanes. In dollars, for $500 million you and 15 of your friends can fly to the International Space Station.
Firefox is my browser of choice on the Windows platform and I use it all the time on my Mac alongside Safari.
