Tyrannosaurus Moz writes: "According to, Mozilla has achieved 1.1% usage, up 0.3% from 0.8% in September. If you count Netscape 7 as Mozilla (it is) then Mozilla-based browsers now control about 1.7% of the Web browser market." Internet Explorer is still the number one browser with a 95% usage share but Mozilla has now overtaken Opera as the third most popular browser, behind Netscape (all versions) with 3%.

Chuck Upsdell's Browser Stats <> show similar numbers: Gecko-based browsers have 1.8% usage share, and Opera has only 0.75%.

The better news is that use of Netscape 4 and IE 4 is continuing to drop. When those browsers are gone, it'll be easier for web authors to use the standards and still make sites work for nearly all users.
