Download Firefox, set a world record

Firefox 3, the long awaited upgrade to the popular Internet browser, is soon to be released to the public. I for one can’t wait to download it. I absolutely love Firefox along with the hundreds of plug-ins that allow me to customize my Internet browsing experience to my heart’s desire.

But here’s one more reason for me to love Firefox. If I download the new version on what is being termed the official Firefox Download Day, I will actually be taking part in an attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in 24 hours. Sounds easy but there’s a tiny catch. They haven’t actually announced when Download Day is yet. No problem. I headed on over to Spread Firefox’s special web site they set up just for this occasion and pledged my intent to download the new version on Download Day. In return, Spread Firefox promises to notify me when Download Day is officially set.

You may not know this but this would actually be the second world record I have participated in. Not too long ago my family and I dribbled basketballs in the streets of downtown Indianapolis to set a world record for the most people dribbling a basketball at the same time. Who would have guessed I would be a part of two world records at this point in my life?

If you are interested in taking part in the attempt to break the world record, just click the “Download Day” image in this blog post to visit the Firefox Download Day page and look for the Pledge Now button.
