Microsoft Skeptical of Firefox's 1 Billion Downloads Claim

Maximum PC Staff

While most of us have heard Mozilla’s claim that Firefox has had 1 billion downloads, some at Microsoft aren’t so sure . According to Amy Barzdukas, a general manager at Microsoft in charge of Internet Explorer, the milestone made for some “interesting math.”

“It's an interesting number and I have not seen the math [but] how many internet connected users are there? 1.1 billion, 1.5 billion, something in that area,” said Barzdukas. Mozilla’s one billion figure includes every single update and all downloads since Firefox’s initial 2004 launch.

Do you think the folks at Mozilla are telling the truth, or fudging the numbers? Let us know in the comments.
