Wow. The Mozilla Foundation set a goal of 1,000,000 downloads of Firefox 1.0PR in ten days. It only took four.

Now they want to see how fast they can reach 2 million.

It does make me wonder just what download numbers mean. I’ve downloaded it myself three times — once at work for Windows, then once each at home for Linux and Mac — and at some point I’ll need to download the Windows version at home. On the other hand, I installed the one copy I downloaded at work on at least three different computers. So the number of downloads is more than the number of people downloading, but less than the number of installations.
