Now that Mozilla's Download Day has come to an end, it's time to do a quick round up of what we know:

  • The day after Download Day
    Download Day officially begun at 11:16PDT yesterday (server problems moved it forward from 10:00PDT)
  • Total downloads in the region of 8.3 million (the actual number of Guinness World Record qualifying downloads will be announced in a few days)
  • That works out as an average of 5,700 per minute
  • Downloads per minute were around 10,000 per minute during the last half hour of Download Day
  • Nearly 2.6 million downloads in the US alone
  • Firefox 3.0 market share now hovers at around 3.5 - 4.0%, up from 0.96% at the start of Download Day (the total Firefox market share for May stood at 18.41%) - Data by Net Applications

Here's a look at the market share data for the period:

All in all, it's been a pretty good 24 hours for Mozilla, considering things got off to a bad start. It'll be interesting to keep an eye on the browser market share data for the next few months and see if Firefox 3.0 and Download Day will have an overall effect on the number of Firefox users out there.

[UPDATE: Oh, and here comes the inevitable zero-day vulnerability ...]

[UPDATE: According to Net Applications, Firefox 3.0 usage peaked at 6.2% on 6/19/2008 at 5:00:00 AM (EDT)]
