500 Million Downloads of Firefox (almost)

The Firefox browser has been downloaded nearly 500 million times, says their SpreadFirefox website. Parent organization Mozilla is celebrating by raising 500 million grains of rice on FreeRice. That, says Mozilla, is enough to feed 25,000 people for a day.

Earlier this month we reported that Firefox 3, beta version 3, had been released. The browser has around 17% market share worldwide and 150 million active users.
