Mozilla developers announced Firefox 2 has been downloaded more than 2 million times within 24 hours of the official launch on Tuesday.
For those that don't remember, here's what we looked like compared to our earlier releases:

Firefox 1.0: 1 million downloads in the first 24 hours.
Firefox 1.5: 1.5 million downloads in the first 24 hours
Firefox 2: 2 million (actually slightly more) people using Firefox 2 in the first 24 hours.

Maybe we should jump straight to Firefox 10 and see if we get 10 million users in the first 24 hours ;-)
