According to Mozilla's Firefox 4 Download Stats page, almost exactly 24 hours after it was released, the number of downloads for Firefox 4 have exceeded 6.96 million – over three times the rate at which Internet Explorer 9 was downloaded in the first 24 hours after its release.

At the time of this posting, Europe has accounted for nearly half of these downloads, at 45%, followed by North America at 25% and Asia about 20%. South America accounts for 7% and Oceania And Africa trail at just under 2% each.

This latest version of the open source web browser brings a streamlined user interface and support for many HTML5 features. It also includes a new method for managing tabs, Panorama and built-in support for Firefox Sync, a synchronisation service that was previously only available as a plug-in.

Further information about Firefox 4 can be found in a feature article entitled "What's new in Firefox 4.0" in The H Open.
