WordPress Plugins Downloaded Over 100 Million Times

Looks like it is another month of milestones, yesterday Firefox crossed 2 billion add-on downloads and today it was the turn of WordPress to cross over 100 million plugin downloads.


In an announcement on the official WordPress blog, the dev team have released some statistics which state that 10,000+ plugins in the WordPress repository have been downloaded over 100 million times. In addition to that, WordPress 3.0 has also been downloaded over 3 million times.

WordPress 3.0 Thelonious passed 3 million downloads yesterday, and today the plugin directory followed suit with a milestone of its own: 100 million downloads.

Just like , WordPress plugins too have been a very integral part of the popularity of WordPress. WordPress has a huge community of developers and contributors who have made this possible and there is definitely more in store with the latest version of WordPress taking a CMS approach.

I am also proud to say that my WordPress plugins have been downloaded around 400,000 times which is definitely a great number. I am very sure that other contributions and plugin developers will be proud of their achievements too.
