200 million Firefox downloads · 2013-04-24 16:17 by Denise Große
As Adblock Plus is growing rapidly, we are constantly breaking new thresholds. Today, world’s most popular extension has achieved a new milestone that no one before us was able to reach: we have reached the 200th million download on Firefox. This makes Adblock Plus the first browser add-on ever to generate that many downloads on a single platform.
So how many is 200 million downloads exactly? Doing some basic calculations, this means that since the introduction in 2006, the Adblock Plus was downloaded on average approximately once every second… Consistently during the period of over 7 years!
We are constantly working hard to develop the extension further to ensure a flawless web experience on multiple platforms. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our users (each one of you!) for using Adblock Plus, our vast user base of tens of millions users have actively contributed to our success. A final shout out goes to our contributors, the beating heart of the ABP functionality. We thank you for all the voluntary hard work over the years — without you, we would have never achieved such a success.
