Mozilla on Thursday touted Firefox Quantum, the browser upgrade launched one month ago, as its biggest release ever and said early adoption metrics have been "super encouraging."
But preliminary browser measurements taken by the U.S. government show only a small increase in Firefox's domestic usage since Quantum debuted on Nov. 14.
That did not deter Mozilla, however.
"In less than a month, Firefox Quantum has already been installed by over 170 [million] people around the world," Nick Nguyen, the company's top Firefox executive, wrote in a post to the firm's primary blog. "We're just getting started and early returns are super encouraging."
