Yesterday I attended the Firefox 3 release in Tokyo. Gen Kanai (Mozilla marketing manager) invited me and Danny to the event. Unfortunately Danny could not attend but Francesco and Peter came with me. We had a great time meeting all kinds of people and eating really good food. Here there is Gen Kanai‘s smile after the launch, I guess he has been working really hard lately and now he is very happy with Firefox 3 success.
What you can see behind Gen‘s head is a screen showing Firefox 3 downloads all around Japan. I recorded a video that shows how Firefox 3 was released and in seconds people all around the country started downloading it. I specially like the bursts around Tokyo and Osaka area.
