It seems Microsoft isn't exactly bowled over by Mozilla's claim of one billion Firefox downloads.
Most of you were pretty pleased to hear that Mozilla had reached one billion downloads. Given that a lot of you use the browser, you were happy to hear you played a small role in something so huge for the company. However, it seems Microsoft isn't exactly convinced of Mozilla's achievement. According to The Guardian, Amy Barzdukas, a general manager at Microsoft in charge of the company's Internet Explorer browser, said that Mozilla's recent milestone announcement made for "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," Barzdukas said.
Mozilla's one billion figure includes every update and all downloads since Firefox's 2004 launch. Do you think Mozilla is correct in its claim? Let us know in the comments below!
