Firefox download counter

Sunday, April 17th, 2005

Firefox has had over 46 million downloads! I’ve been meaning to add a link on my blog to the Spread Firefox site for a while, and today I noticed that Download Counter was back and with a feed!

It looks like Quantum Mechanics is getting yet another theory. This time it’s Decoherence. It works together all the seperate collapse theories, so no conflicts there. (The Role of Decoherence in Quantum Mechanics). It also explains why small systems can remain in a state of flux and big systems don’t. Not only that, but they’ve […]
