Please download Firefox 3 by 11:16 a.m. PDT (18:16 UTC) on June 18, 2008. That’s 11:16 a.m. in Mountain View, 2:16 p.m. in Toronto, 3:16 p.m. in Rio de Janeiro, 8:16 p.m. in Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Rome and Warsaw, 10:16 p.m. in Moscow, and June 19, 2008 at 2:16 a.m. in Beijing and 3:16 a.m. in Tokyo.
Sounds like a good deal, right? All you have to do to help us set the record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours is get Firefox 3 now – it’s that easy. We’re not asking you to swallow a sword or to balance 30 spoons on your face, although that would be kind of awesome.
That means 21:16 Romanian time. The website promotig this is: http://www.spreadfirefox.com/en-US/worldrecord and you can get there a pdf certificate saying that you helped setting the world record, and even get more involved in helping grow Firefox, and of course, you can get FIREFOX there!
- The US declares war against the crown (UK) – 1812
- Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo – 1815

And so on, this sems to be a pretty important day doesn’t it? Hopefuly on a personal level it will be as great as possible for each and every one of you!
PS: Good luck today Adelina!
