Twenty-four hours later, over 7 Million downloads were made for Firefox 3 worldwide surpassing the 5M target by Mozilla. In comparison, Opera 9.5 had 4.7 million downloads in its first 5 days after the June 12 release.

In the South East Asian region, the Philippines contributed over 26,000 downloads. What’s surprising though is that among the SEA countries, Vietnam took the top spot with close to 34,000 downloads. For a small and upcoming country, Vietnam sure does made an impression in the IT circles.

Here’s the rundown of the rest:

Realme Philippines

Vietnam – 33,863
Singapore – 27,397
Malaysia – 27,156
Philippines – 26,201
Thailand – 23,894
Indonesia – 19,775

Mozilla could have done better than this figure if their server didn’t go down during the first few hours of rush time.

Finally, a good post about this subject! I can not believe I had to go thru like 20 blogs just to come across this excellent post. All their content together still can not equal the content of this article. I have learned a lot and will bookmark your web page. Maintain up the good job!

im not really suprised about Vietnam coming up at the top spot because in SEA, Vietnam has the most number of broadband subscribers at 1.8 million compared to Philippines which has only 967 thousand.

As an Opera fan, I still don’t get it.

What is there in Firefox that Opera doesn’t have?

I think majority of our users are just renting from the shops and don’t have their own PC. Sa dami ba naman ng internet cafe dito sa atin. Maybe on friendster mag #1 pa tayo…

Hindi naman kasi lahat ng pinoy blessed at may PC na may ipagmamalaking internet connection diba?

Mas nanaisin pa nilang ipambili ng mumurahing noodles para sa kanilang mga gutom na anak ang installation fee sa kanilang pagpapakabit ng internet.

Wow. 7M is a lot!! I downloaded it too and it’s quite fast! :D Vietnam got ahead of us? Quite unbelievable, but maybe the Philippines really lag behind in terms of IT in S.E.A. Tsk tsk…

to think of it, the ratio of our population to those who have internet over the ratio of people who really know how to use the internet. kawawa naman tyo. Ang internet naman ay wala sa PC lang! Meron naman phone eh. Hindi lang talaga na educate and market gumamit.

Hehe… well Viet Nam already took over the Philippines ;) Their government have to pass laws to control online usage, imagine that. There are just too many Generation X and Generation Y in VietNam today, compared to our country.

Oh, the region is now referred to as “Asean” ;) gone are the days of “SEA” ^_^

Cesar,

Firebug has officially supported FF3 for about a week now. You may be running an older version of Firebug. You’ll need version 1.2 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1843

I downloaded 3, one for my mac and 2 for my XP and vista laptops…. So far so good with my mac but very unfortunate with my XP, it crushed twice as soon as I first launch it. sigh.

Perhaps we local Firefox fans could’ve done more in promoting Download Day. Still, kudos to Mozilla for this new world record.

I just download FF3 and I was disappointed because they didn’t have supports on some of my favorite add-ons (Firebug in particular)
