>380k Downloads for SeaMonkey 1.1.1

Yes, you read this right in the topic: SeaMonkey 1.1.1 has more than 380k officially recorded downloads!

To be exact, the "bouncer" download redirecting tool recorded 381,196 downloads for SeaMonkey 1.1.1 from its release on February 28 until the release of 1.1.2 yesterday - for the three main download links on our websites only, i.e. Windows installer, Linux installer and MacOS X Disk Image, in English language.
Downloads of any other builds (.zip or tarballs, other platforms and other languages) are not counted, as well as downloads that are issued directly from FTP servers, or through other means of distribution (Linux distro packages, etc.) - so the real number is probably significantly higher, but we don't know such numbers. What we know are bouncer statistics (links to download.mozilla.org go through this tool), and only those.

A graph of bouncer downloads for all releases since 1.0 nicely shows how numbers are rising:
Image No. 15836

Of course, the long period between 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 has helped a lot to reach such heights, but still this shows that a significant group of people is interested in the SeaMonkey suite.

I hope numbers continue to increase like that in the future - and thanks for every one of those people who downloaded our software and hopefully are also using it!

Congratulations. I use SeaMonkey myself. I used to experiment with Mozilla back when and then finally switched from IE at Mozilla 0.9.3/IE 6 (when I realized IE wasn't going to get the features that Mozilla had). Some time later, the developers introduced Firefox (or Phoenix as it was back then). I thought the split of the components was good, but I didn't like the direction they took it. They basically took out all the features that made me switch to Mozilla in the first place. I kept using Mozilla after it was declared dead and then switched to SeaMonkey when you guys took over (before it even acquired the name SeaMonkey).

With that said, I do use the zip files (or compile it myself whenever possible). I really don't care for the installers. Well, that's it I guess. Good luck on building the end-all, be-all toolkit-based suite SeaMonkey 2.0.
