usually it’s not that easy, to be part of a world record - and even this time I almost missed the opportunity and took only part in it, because Mr. Firfox himself was a little bit late…:] Anyways - one hour later than originally planned the “Firefox 3 Download Day” took off - and I took part in it ‘already’ one hour before it was all over. Hurray!
Before I clicked the download link the download counter showed that already 7,832,299 downloads were downloaded before mine - so I guess download number 7,832,300 can be concidered as ‘my’ download…:]
At that time the download statistic showed over half a million requests from Germany alone, some 165.000 from China, more than 1500 from Jamaika - and with 1002 downloads Cuba was not really on the last position.
First I wasn’t even sure if I should really try to download this brand new version of my favourite browser a.s.a.p. or if I should rather wait, until the ‘first download wave’ was over… But when I read the first reviews and saw all the hype and nice blinking banners and invitations to download parties all over the world I was ‘on fire’ and started downloading. Not even two minutes later my hard drive was one 17,2 MB application fuller - and I was one 17,2 MB application happier…:]
Of course I haven’t yet checked out all those new features - but so far I am quite curious about all those little helpers and features an the ‘real zoom’ and so on - and I will probably sooner or later write something like a small review about my experiences with this best-browser-ever… - …or is it…? …we’ll see…:] For now I am just happy that I finally made it to be part of a world record..
