Download Day - English

Mozilla aims to set a Guinness Record today for the most number of downloads in 24 hours, for Firefox 3. The main site is expectedly down (such is the rush of Firefox enthusiasts!) and I had to turn to an Asian mirror, although I’m not sure if this would count towards the record.

Main site is up and running. This copy of FF3 will have definitely contributed to the record. I can now sleep in peace!
