At last, a shot at Guinness World Record fame!

28 May

The Guinness Book of World Records has *always* held a sense of allure for me ever since childhood.

So it’s with great excitement that I actually get to take part in one and you can too!  The Firefox community is banding together around the launch of Firefox 3 to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours.  Launch day is some time in June so check out Download Day Headquarters and pledge to download Firefox 3.

As soon as Firefox 3 goes out the door the clock will start ticking for downloads.  There is no guarantee that we’ll make the book or their website, but we have a better shot at it if we organize some wacky Download Fests and document them.  Get creative and tag your photos and videos with “Firefox 3 World Record.”  We’ll be pulling an all-nighter here at Mozilla with food and fun!  Details to come…

Pulling this together has been a huge and worldwide effort — we’ve launched the site in 10 languages! I want to extend special thanks to:
