The long wait is over – almost. Firefox 4 is set to be released tomorrow, March 22. Mozilla has yet to really announce the date yet, so the lack of a big marketing blitz is somewhat puzzling. However, going from the release schedule this does seem to be the case.

In the first 24 hours that is was available, Firefox 3.0.11 was downloaded 150 million times. This big news comes on the heels of Apple boasting about 11 million downloads of Safari 4 in three days. *tries not to chuckle*
Now it is likely that both companies included the automatic updates in their download numbers, however that doesn’t really take away from the fact that many more users are getting those latest updates these days, which for security reasons is a very good thing indeed.
So congrats to Firefox for 150 Million downloads, and to Safari… well, 11 million is pretty good too. *holds back “that is cute” remark*
