Pledge for FireFox! (world record)

Unread post by Superflonic » May 30th, 2008, 5:43 am

Hey guys, yesterday, I was told about firefox trying to achieve a world-record.
On what? On the biggest amount of downloaders in 24h.
How can you help?
Go to http://www.spreadfirefox.com/en-US/worldrecord and hit the Pledge Now! button.
From there, you can fill in your email adress (don't worry, it's safe) and get a notification on when firefox 3 becomes available.

So, get pledging!

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

I'll just download it when I realize it's out. Pledges like this don't really do anything.

Opera.... it was awesome, but I guess Firefox's extensions and the community is what I really liked.

true, but it does motivate quite a number of people to join in.

just tried the release candidate right now, and all i can say is that it's awesome. gotta download this once it comes out.

Well, in a while, Mozilla is going to bring out a newer version of firefox. It's number 3. It's been quite some time yaddayaddayadda, and now, Mozilla decided to make an attempt at the world record of most downloads in the first 24hours of being downloadable. So, you can sign up for a single email (two actually, one for the sign-up and one for de release date) and be there for the attempt.

TL;DR? DO IT.

You have my sword!.....er...my bandwidth, anyway.
Downloading FF3 when it comes out :)

This is a cool attempt. I hope that they manage to pull off the record. Also, this means that I get a notification when Fx3 is released since I'm currently running RC2 on my home machine that's kinda important to me ^_^

I hope they have some improvements on speed, since it's below Safari from what I've seen.

It's here, finally.... Download Day is June 17th 2008.

Just got the notification e-mail... I'm gonna join the download party. I'm just curious how heavy the traffic will be during that day in Mozilla.. Hope, they provide enough server, and fast one... Well, It'll be quite a crappy event if they don't..

But, man... they actually pick my sister's birthday for the release date,, lol.

Over 1,200,000 people pledged already, if the numbers are to be believed (they ARE a bit iffy here and there).
Wow.
I really hope Mozilla have some serious hardware at hand for the release date, or a LOT of people are going see a 404 page REAL quick.

Well, that was to be expected, somehow.
Anyway, I am part of it. Downloading now, if I can.

-Edit.

Wait. There is no link to the download mirror. None.
Only links to the release candidates or FF2. Where is it. WHERE IS IT!?
