Firefox: 2 billion add-ons downloaded

Landmark figure higher than number of people online globally

Numbers show Firefox is still up there as browser battle rages.

A whacking two billion add-ons for Firefox have now been downloaded, Mozilla has confirmed. The eye-watering figures show just how popular the open source extras are for Firefox users.

The number of downloaded add-ons is greater than the number of people who use the internet around the world. That’s mighty impressive, even if only about 150 million of said add-ons are used every day.

It’s taken almost two years for Mozilla to double its downloaded add-ons, with the billion mark being passed in November 2008. To celebrate, it’s unleashed a Top 25 collection of add-ons, including Glue, AdBlock Plus and Destroy The Web.
