Firefox 4 tops 100 million downloads Launched on March 22nd, Mozilla's Firefox 4 has become a rockstar, topping 100 million downloads earlier this morning.
The numbers come via Mozilla's "Glow" stats ticker page, which has been updating the downloads since launch. You can check that page here: Firefox 4 Downloads

StatCounter (via Crunch), says Firefox 4 already has 8 percent of the worldwide browser market share, behind more established IE8 at 30 percent, Firefox 3.6 at 24.43 percent and Chrome 10 at 15.35 percent.

Microsoft recently released Internet Explorer 9, a complete overhaul of their previous browsers, and Google has released betas of Chrome 11, which adds HTML5 speech input, allowing users to talk into their mics and have the browser type out what you are saying (great for hands-free searches).

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.

I'm torn between Chrome and Firefox.


If I always hear voices surrounding me, does it mean Im crazy or that I hear in Dolby 5.1?

I wouldn't mind Chrome.. except every time I start it up it installs DoubleClick spyware.
