100,000,000 Downloads

100,000,000 downloads. That’s almost 1/3 of the US population. Here’s another cool stat:

That’s right. Only 11 countries in the entire world have a population higher than the download count. And were not to far from just 10 left.

In case anyone else wants to play with the number of the day (hint 100 Mil), leave a comment with a statistic to show how large the number really is. If you can, also cite your statistics. If a few people participate, perhaps I’ll make a little poll so people can vote on what the most impressive way to show 100 Mil is.

    Well, let’s look at the list of countries sorted by area … none come close to 100 Mil square Km. (see here –> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L.....es_by_area )

    You can see here, that the land surface is only a bit short of 149 Mil square Km. Firefox should reach that mark around april/may !!!

    Cheers,

    If each download represents one person, and all those people were to stand in a long line, the line would wrap once around the equator. (If each person takes up a space of 0.4 m, or just over 1 foot.

  4. David Naylor says:

    …or to be more exact: 0.40076 m or 1.3148 feet. Which, in my simulations, is a pretty tight que.

  5. 100000000!

    Herzliche Gratulation, Firefox!

    Every inhabitant of my home town would have had to download Firefox 200 times to equal this figure.

    If I were to attempt to make Firefox look better on Download.com and use my old dial-up modem to download another three hundred million copies of Firefox, it would take me 3555555 days, or approximately 9741 years.
