Microsoft said that 2.3 million copies of IE 9 were downloaded in the first day, and undoubtedly, there are been millions more since.
Still, Firefox 4, which launched on March 22, has already clocked up 6.5 million downloads, according to the Mozilla Foundation in an interview with The Inquirer, with potentially more to be added to the final tally.
A download 'glow' stats page for Firefox 4 is available to view here, where over 7.6m downloads are already listed at the time of publication.
Mozilla itself celebrates the launch of Firefox 4 on its blog.
Promising a 'fast, sleek and customisable browsing experience' to more than 400 million of its existing users worldwide, Firefox 4 does bear a resemblance to the simplified interfaces of IE 9 and Google Chrome, as the web itself and all the content within are presented with less clutter.
Well, at least until some users find all manner of toolbars on their browsers, often signifying that adware if nothing else is on the computer.
Beyond that, Firefox 4 has predictably received a 'streamlined user interface, fun new features, a boost in speed and support for modern Web technologies'.

These include fastest Firefox performance ever at 'up to six times faster' than the previous version. New app tabs appear in the interface, an improved tab switching capability and panorama mode are available.
Firefox 4 even promises to provide 'uninterrupted browsing when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, Apple QuickTime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins. If one of these plugins crashes or freezes, it won't affect the rest of Firefox. Simply reload the page to restart the plugin.'
So, as always, technology continues improving, and browsers do too. Presumably by the time Firefox gets to version 5.0, Google will be up to version 20 of Chrome, and Microsoft somewhere in between.
Whichever browser you choose, they've never been more advanced or hardware accelerated - and there's no reason why you should only limit yourself to one, when you can install as many browsers as you like.
So, go forth and browse, and may the force of millions of browser downloads be with you!
