For the cool guys and girls from the Oregon State Linux Users Group, celebrating the 200 million download milestone, the decision was made to better the previous events with a really memorable one. What better than a crop circle of over 45,000 square feet.
So August 2006, only one year and nine months after the launch of FireFox 1.0, the Mozilla Corporation has distributed over 200 million copies. Some die-hard FireFox fans admit they may have downloaded it over 50 times each but hey that's no much of a dent on 200 million now is it ??
This is obviously recounted at the Fox Tales web site, a pure FireFox fanatics blog about all things FireFox of course...
For a closer look at how the crop circle came to life check out the story here, including a full photo gallery, and even videos !
As per Red Herring :
Meanwhile, the 200-million downloads mark could also bring Firefox closer to 15 percent of the total browser market share.
May FireFox continue with a long and happy life !
