About 2 Billion Firefox Add-Ons Have Been Downloaded

Mozilla recently announced that Firefox users have downloaded over two billion browser add-ons.  As part of the milestone announcement, Mozilla created a list of the top 25 add-ons.  Mozilla has about 60,000 add-ons contributed by third-party developers.  There are about 150 million active users of these two billion downloads.  “When we reached 1 billion Firefox Add-on downloads in November 2008, we thought it would take us less than 3 years to get to the next billion, and with your help, we’ve gotten to 2 billion in half that time,” stated the Mozilla’s add-on team in a blog post. “With more than 150 million add-ons in use every day, we know that the next billion add-on downloads will be here before we know it.”
