The open-source Firefox web browser now holds the Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in a day.
Mozilla Foundation said today that its recent 'Download Day' record attempt was successful.
It thanked the Mozilla community, which downloaded the latest version of the browser, Firefox 3, an impressive 8,002,530 times in 24 hours.
The record attempt did not run completely smoothly, with many internet users reporting that they were unable to connect to Mozilla's servers.
Some visitors checking for the update were delayed by up to two hours as the servers buckled under the massive demand.
A matter of hours after Firefox 3 was made available, security firm DV Labs/Tipping Point claimed it had found a flaw that could let cybercriminals take over a PC if malicious links were clicked.
Firefox now holds over 19 per cent of the world browser market, making it the second most popular behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Mozilla believes that it will push over the magic 20 per cent mark this month.
The counter on the record site currently displays nearly 28.5 million downloads of Firefox 3.
