Firefox market share still growing



This should have made it into the last update, but…. it didn’t.

According to onestat.com and reported at desktoplinux.com the firefox browser is continuing to make market share gains. Now it stands at around 11% market share worldwide and 14% in the US.



I’ve got to say, I’m glad to see that. I’d love to see other browsers making strides like that as well. (Opera for instance now that it’s freely available without ads.) My main point being, I like firefox and use it quite a bit, but I think the long term “health” of web browsing is improved by having several alternatives for browsing pages. I’d hate to see a world where firefox was the ONLY browser people used, just as I was frustrated when Explorer was the “only” browser people used.

Hopefully what that would mean is several standards compliant browsers that compete on speed of rendering, plugin capabilities, rss/mail integration, etc.
