Help Firefox set a Guinness world record

Firefox Download Day 2008The Firefox team would like to invite the world to join in their quest to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours. How do they planning to do this? They want as many people as possible to pledge to download Firefox 3 within 24 hours of its release as part of Download Day 2008.

While the release day is still unknown -- sometime in June is as much of a hint as we're getting -- pledging signs you up for updates about the imminent release of Firefox 3. You can also use your favorite social networking group (Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, Twitter) to follow the journey of Firefox to a world record.

When I wrote this post, 356,554 people had pledged to grab Firefox 3 on Download Day 2008. The US is leading with 58,862 pledges, with Brazil in second place with 23,030. Wherever you reside, be sure to participate in this fun event!
