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%.

Starting late next year AOL users will start switching to Mozilla based browser. -> 20% (In the U.S. at least)

Over the next five years or so Linux will take a chunk out of the desktop -> 20%

Non-PC clients are gradually becoming more popular. A lot of those will be Opera, but some will be Mozilla -> 5%

Word of mouth among geeks or wanna-be geeks -> 5%

I bet Apple ships with Mozilla at some point, once they feel they don't need MS -> 5%

Those guesses are just that of course - wild guesses. But I expect enough of them will bear out that Mozilla will have a bright future.
