Counting downloads is totally in now. All the world is in frenzy about how often something was downloaded. “Spread Firefox” was one of the sites to start this all. Firefox has reached 50,000,000 downloads today. And now after the release of Opera 8 the Opera guys are also counting.
Everyone knows that download counters aren’t a measure for how much people actually use something. I’m for example one of those more than 1,000,000 people who downloaded Opera 8. I have played with it for 1 hour and said to myself “No, I’ll stick with Firefox and Thunderbird” But it’s always better to have some people at least consider using one’s software.
So, I’m happy to announce that yesterday for the 10,000th time someone downloaded Squareness or OverlayDesktop from wincustomize.com.
