It's not been 24 hours yet, and Mozilla's Firefox 3.5 web browser has been downloaded over 4.7 million times.
You can keep an eye on the download stats here.
It doesn't look like Mozilla will beat the world record set back when it released Firefox 3.0, where there were 8 million downloads in 24 hours.
I've been running Firefox 3.5 for a few hours now and have a few thoughts:
- Page loading times are fast, noticeably faster than IE8.
- However, firing up the browser is painfully slow, even with no add-ons.
- Private mode works well, but it's nothing new, and an example of Mozilla playing catch-up.
I'm also getting a lot of reports of random issues, from web pages not being rendered properly, add-ons not working, and crashes. I've not tried replication any of these issues yet so I can't comment.
Nice browser, but it feels evolutionary as opposed to revolutionary.
