Millions of Firefox Downloads
Version 1.0 of the Firefox browser came out November 9th. On December 11th, Mozilla recorded its 10,000,000th download. Ten million downloads in just over a month. According to Information Week, Pennsylvania State University contacted their students and staff to recommend that they use a browser other than Internet Explorer because of its security problems. Don't get me wrong -- Internet Explorer is not going anywhere for the foreseeable future. However, the percentage of people using IE is decreasing -- slowly -- but it is decreasing.
