100,000,000 Firefox downloads!

According to TickerFox, there have been 100,000,000 downloads of Firefox! Let's crack open the bubbly and give all the developers a pat on the back.

Yay! This is a cause for celebration, at least for the developers! I'd like to say a really BIG THANK YOU to them! Firefox is fantastic.

But how many unique users?

Thats the interesting bit. Many of those downloads may be people downloading the new versions.

Yes, I have downloaded it myself many times, versions 0.7, 0.8, 1.0PR, 1.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3, 1.0.4, 1.0.6 and now 1.0.7

However I have migrated about 12 of my friends who use Windows *vomit* away from Internet Sexplorer and now theyre using Firefox.
