Thunderbird Statistics

I contacted Asbjørn Sloth Tønnesen a while back to persuade him to create a Thunderbird Statistics site similar to the one he did for Firefox. He has graciously done us a great favour by adapting the Firefox Statistics site to Thunderbird.

Below shows a graph of Thunderbird downloads and there are even more great statistics over at his site, such as the countdown script. At the time of this blog post’s writing, Thunderbird is poised to hit 36 million downloads on Saturday, 18 Nov 2006 10.46:08 UTC (subject to changes).
