Download.com and eWeek on Mozilla in 2002

In related news, several eWeek Labs analysts have described Mozilla as the 'Most Useful' or 'Most Impressive' technology of 2002. Thanks to MozFan for the pointer.

Update! The article aengblom refers to is actually a list of CNET Download.com's top picks of 2002. The Top Ten Downloads of 2002, a separate article in which Mozilla does not feature, is a list of the year's most-downloaded software.


#1 That's not the top 10 downloads

aengblom got it wrong. The top 10 downloads are listed here <http://download.com.com/1…-2023-978523.html?tag=txt> with ICQ (Pro) topping with 221,456,779 downloads in 2002. Number 10 is Audiogalaxy Satellite with 31,584,092 downloads. Mozilla 1.2.1 itself had "only" 246,939 downloads in december: <http://download.com.com/3…356-10117877.html?tag=txt> And this only on the windows platform. Hell, that would make around 3,000,000 downloads if the downloads have been similar in the other months. I don't have to check that right now. While 3 million is very nice, it's only 10% of the 30 million of Audiogalaxy Satellite...

The reason Mozilla was mentioned, is that one of the CNET's staff chose this as his favorite software of the year.
