Firefox 4 beats IE9 in first 24-hour download count

Mozilla's Firefox, the community developed open source browser from the Mozilla Foundation, debut its latest version, numbering 4, on Tuesday. According to Mozilla's download statistics tally, the browser was downloaded over seven million times with the first 24 hours of its launch, almost three times the 2.4 million downloads boasted by Microsoft for its recently released Internet Explorer 9.

According to research firm Net Applications February 2011 data, over half the world still runs on Windows XP, while around 34% runs on either Windows Vista or Windows 7. Close to 5% runs on Mac OS versions, while just under a percent are Linux users. Consequentially, the addressable universe of users for Firefox is much larger than that of IE9, which is evident from its download popularity.

Firefox 4 features include tab groups, a do-not-track option, addons, and performance upgrades.
