Firefox 4 Has Over Six Million Downloads in First Day

Posted by at 11:04 am on March 23, 2011

Since its official release yesterday, Mozilla’s Firefox 4 web browser is at nearly seven million downloads and counting, according to a live counter. This accounts for nearly two percent of the worldwide Internet browser market, said StatCounter, which easily beats out Microsoft Internet Explorer 9’s 2.3 million downloads over the course of 24 hours.

As of yesterday, IE 9 had just 0.87 percent of the worldwide browser share. Incompatibility with Windows XP is part of the reason for the slow adoption rate.

When all versions are combined, Internet Explorer leads the global market, however, at 45 percent compared to Firefox’ 30. In the US, all Firefox versions trail Internet Explorer 26 percent to 48.

In Europe, Firefox overtook Internet Explorer in December.
