Everything Ashburn thinks it is safe to say that folks living in the DC Metro, Baltimore Washington, and Dulles Technology regions know their way around the the Internet highways. Having grown up and cut our teeth on Internet Explorer, many of us have moved up the more sophisticated web browser Firefox created by a company affectionately known as Mozilla.

Now, with IT Marketing on the cutting edge, they have come up with an interesting and fun plan to promote their latest and (we hope) greatest new version of their tab topped, firewall protected, adware shunning software; they are asking patrons to download the new software version all together during one 24 hour period–and they are aiming to set the record straight.

Here’s the scoop, extracted right from the Mozilla Firefox page:

Set a Guinness World Record
Enjoy a Better Web

Sounds like a good deal, right? All you have to do is get Firefox 3 during Download Day to help set the record for most software downloads in 24 hours – it’s that easy. We’re not asking you to swallow a sword or to balance 30 spoons on your face, although that would be kind of awesome.

By the way, the official date for the launch of Firefox 3 will be posted here soon – so check back! Join our community and this effort by pledging today.

I pledge to get Firefox 3 during Download Day to set the Guinness World Record for Most Software Downloaded in 24 Hours.

Pledge Now!

We’ve pledged… and will look forward to following this story. Our guess is that other folks around Ashburn and Brambleton will too. As such, we are looking forward to monitoring their progress on the story… and will post reminders as the date nears, too. For more information about the date of the release, please visit http://www.spreadfirefox.com/en-US/worldrecord. If you are new to Firefox, give it a few weeks until you know your way around before you dismiss it in favor of the old IE tried and true. We know we did, and are obviously glad. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be here telling you.
