As we reported yesterday, Firefox was on track to pass one billion downloads at some point on Friday. That point is now, as the counter on the Spread Firefox site as well as the Firefox Counter Twitter account are sporting numbers in the 10 digits.
Mozilla plans to launch the website onebillionplusyou.com on Monday, but for now, has provided a number of graphics to mark the event.
Of course, more important than total downloads is the actual percentage of active web users that use the browser. Recent stats peg Firefox with 22 percent of the browser market, up about 4 percent from this time last year. Meanwhile, Safari continues to grow, while upstart Google Chrome is slowly gaining adoption. All of this continues to come at the expense of Internet Explorer, which is still steadily losing market share.
