Help Firefox 3 Create a World Record

Download Day 2008Join Firefox in its mission to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours!

Sounds like a good deal, right? All you have to do is get Firefox 3 during Download Day to help set the record for most software downloads in 24 hours - it’s that easy. We're not asking you to swallow a sword or to balance 30 spoons on your face, although that would be kind of awesome.

The official date for the launch of Firefox 3 is June 17, 2008

To take part in this effort, just download Firefox 3 as soon as it is available, preferably from Download Day Headquarters. You'll get a customised certificate by downloading from Headquarters.

Firefox fans in India have to download Firefox 3 from the Download Day Headquarters by 11:46 PM [23:46] on June 18, 2008 to be able to contribute to the record-making download count.

Update: There were more than eight million Firefox 3 downloads in 24 hours.

Beat you!! I am in Malaysia and downloaded it yesterday but because I needed it. Had no clue about the competition. Why this record-making download desire to be in Guinness World record anyway? I hope its not like "Shabaash India" kind of competitions. I dont approve of them at all.
