Mozilla Firefox has officially broke past 500 million downloads of their Web Browser. In light of their success, Mozilla has donated 500M grains of rice which will feed approximately 25,000 people.
Firefox has been the browser of choice among power users and it appears word of mouth marketing has paid off is paying it forward for people in need by donating 500M grains of rice in celebration over to FreeRice.
Mozilla is able to make this possible with a very positive synergy between Google. For every download of Firefox, Google funds Mozilla an estimated $1.50 per installation. Google knows that with the integrated search bar that isn’t intrusive but very useful, they will have a lot of Web traffic, visibility on their ads and deliver millions of impressions for their advertising network. Do people mind? Obviously not.
To download Mozilla Firefox (it’s FIREFOX, not “Foxfire”), just head on over to Mozilla’s Web site and grab yourself a copy of the best darn Web browser since 1994 — that was, Netscape.
Congrats, Mozilla! Thanks for making the fastest, most secure and easy to use Web browser.
