As of the writing of this article, the company had recorded roughly 10.96 million downloads to-date.

I noted a comment on a relatively prominent blog this AM that the blogger was happily surprised to see Firefox at 18%. Not a techie blog at all, by the way - the number surprised me, too.

I guess the time is ripe and the product is right.

I'm seeing mozilla creep upwards on stats, so I tried it and like it. Now I primarily use it, though not quite exclusively yet. Very fond of the Adblock feature.

I see people recommending it all the time. The alternative to the "devil" IE apparently...it must be "cool" to have firefox.

// that's without considering the pros and cons obviously!

I doubt their reasons are as technical as the recent firefox thread on this board, either way firefox is "as good or better" as IE and it can only be a good thing that the general internet surfer realises there's more to the net than their home page and IE.

More on browser statistics:

I only suppose Mozilla also includes Firefox, which has been popular among developers for some time now.

Huge 2-page spread ad in the New York Times main section this morning promoting "Download today from getfirefox.com."

Depending on this and that, a full page in the NYT goes for between $50K to $100K. Two pages? That's a humungous amount of money spent to promote something that's free.

How do you calculate ROI?

They've been taking donations for months on the Spread Firefox site to publish that ad. It's likely to be a one-time thing, too. It is interesting that they're so keen to advertise something that's free, but I guess there's the "pride" factor at work here. The group wrote it and deserves some recognition.

A very effective way of doing it.
