Firefox 4 passes 125 million downloads

firefoxWith just a quick look at the Firefox 4 download statistics page it shows that Firefox 4 has been downloaded over 125 million times and that number is still climbing quite rapidly. Within the first 24 hours, Firefox 4 had a total of more than six million downloads. Keep in mind that when Internet Explorer 9 launched a week earlier that there were just 2.35 million downloads according to Betanews. Though in all fairness, IE9 is not available on Windows XP whereas Firefox 4 still works.

Based on the download totals so far it will be interesting to see how Firefox does when they release version 5 and have to compete against the other popular browsers out there.
